    Firefighter Accidentally Shoots Girlfriend
    Man Said He Thought He Heard Intruder In Home


    BROCKTON, Mass. -- A 32-year, veteran Boston firefighter is off the job after police said he admitted to shooting his girlfriend by mistake.

    Just before 1 a.m. Thursday, firefighter Larry Trammell told police officers that he heard someone inside his 551 W. Elm Street home in Brockton and, thinking it was an intruder, he fired his gun.

    Instead, he accidentally shot his girlfriend, he said.

    His neighbors were stunned.

    "It's a tragic incident. I feel badly for him," said Al Shapiro. "I see him sometimes at the store. Very, very nice guy. It's tragic."

    The 56-year-old firefighter, who is based at a Brighton station, wasn't licensed to carry the gun and now faces several weapons charges.

    He was being held without bail until Monday. Investigators said it did appear the shooting was an accident and his 66-year-old girlfriend said so herself before she was taken to the hospital.

    She was in critical but stable condition at Boston Medical Center Friday morning.

    32 year old with a 66 year old girlfriend....is this a typo maybe or just part of the weird story?

    NOTE: I have been corrected but will not attempt to cover up my stupidity by editing.

              What a disappointing article, it says nothing about shot placement.

                        I know several hose draggers that have weapons, none of them have shot their girlfriend/wife. Though one came close because she was cheating on him! Anyway, this kind of thing can happen to anyone, and none of us were there so we can't comment on exactly what happened.

                        Jus sayin....
