Barber Shop Shooting

A convicted felon could now be headed to federal prison. Garden City police say Robert "Gus" Odum accidentally shot himself in the leg yesterday.

It happened at the TC Barber and Stylin' Shop on Augusta Road in Garden City. Witnesses say Odum had just finished getting a haircut. He went to the restroom, then they heard a gunshot.

Odum told police someone else shot him, but they later learned he shot himself by accident.

Police have charged Odum with making false statements to police and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, which is a federal crime.
