A Man Shot at a Fridge in Self-Defense, After a Soda Can Exploded

An unnamed man in Washington state was placing aluminum cans in his fridge last Saturday, when one of them exploded.

The man was startled, and so immediately pulled a pistol out of his waistband and fired a round into the bottom of the fridge.

That alarmed neighbors, and police were called.

Authorities arrived to find the man “yelling incoherently” in a nearby alleyway.

He told the police that the people who live in the basement wanted to kill him, so he fired back in self-defense.

No one lives in a basement below the man. Police noted that, in fact, the home has no basement.

The man was arrested for second degree unlawful possession of a firearm, and discharge of a firearm.
