A guy shot himself through the head. The spear penetrated his head and the wall and he was stuck to the wall. WOW.

Update: He failed in the suicide attempt. The spear penetrated his face and pinned him to the wall. He is alert and talking to the EMTs.

I happened to be listing when they broadcast this call. It was hard to believe what I was hearing. I believe the FD called for another unit for some help. Nothing in the paper though.

Yep. The FD called for another engine and a truck I think. I am guessing for some kind of cutting tool and an operator.
