Here’s what you might call an unlikely sequence of events. A man enters a McDonald’s in the Florida Keys. The man orders breakfast. The man shoots himself in the leg. The manager asks the man to leave the restaurant, then calls police. Police pull the man over and only then does he realize he shot himself.
