W.Va. man sleeps through gunshot to head, notices blood when he wakes
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Michael Lusher apparently is a sound sleeper.
A small-caliber bullet struck the 37-year-old Huntington man in the head as he slept Sunday morning, but he didn't realize it until he awoke nearly four hours later and noticed blood coming from his head, said Cpl. R.H. McQuaid of the Cabell County Sheriff's Department.
The bullet that struck him was one of five that someone sprayed across his mobile home and truck in Huntington's Altizer neighborhood at about 4:20 a.m.
Sunday, McQuaid said. The one the struck Lusher apparently lost velocity as it traveled through two walls."We're just glad he didn't suffer any life-threatening injuries with a head wound, " he said.Lusher came home from a night on the town about an hour before he was shot while lying in bed, McQuaid said.

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!
As we gear up for a tribute to American Soldiers - and an excuse to kick back, bar-b-que and guzzle beer remember to sleep safely! I love it!
