Gun fun

A New Jersey policeman has accidentally shot and killed a man in a Newark bar during a stake-out. The officer, Kip Rangmoto, had been in the bar all night drinking Perrier water while keeping his suspect under surveillance. After several drinks, however, Rangmoto apparently failed to notice the difference between his cigarette lighter and his .44 magnum, and shot the suspect twelve times while attempting to light a cigarette with his service revolver. Rangmoto has been placed on suspension over the weekend pending an investigation.
