The roach obviously won, which I guess just shows that it truly is a cockroach.

WDIV reports that the incident occurred Tuesday morning at a home in Detroit. Police arrived and found a 50-year-old man with a bullet wound on his foot. He told cops that after he saw the cockroach he threw his shoe at it hoping to kill it. However, he forgot that he had put his gun in the shoe, and when he threw it, the revolver fell out and went off. That's when he got shot in the foot.

I'm confused. First, how do you forget that there's a gun in your shoe? And more importantly, who the heck stores a gun inside of a shoe?!?! As much as I hate creepy crawly things, I gotta give credit to the roach for being the smarter one in this situation.

The Detroit Free Press says the man was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition.
