Man Killed After Asking Friend To Shoot Him To Gain Custody Of Child [Video]
A Texas man's bizarre plot to get custody of his child went horribly wrong after police say he told his friend to shoot him but ended up dying from his injuries.
20-year-old Dwayne Lamont Moten died Saturday after police say he made his friend shoot him so that he could place blame on the mother of his child's new boyfriend and get custody of his young son.
The ill plotted plan went astray however and what was supposed to be a flesh wound turned out to be a fatal shot to the chest.
Dallas police homicide Sgt. Bruce McDonald tells the Dallas News,
“He was actually planning on shooting him in the thigh and shoulder. I don't know if [Moten] flinched and turned sideways a little more. The bullet entered the chest cavity and was fatal.”
Before his death Moten was seen driving to the hospital before pulling over in pain and yelling for someone to call 911.
20-year-old Jacob Wheeler, the man who shot him, is in jail for murder and an unrelated aggravated robbery charge.
