A lookout for a bank robbery in Brazil managed to shoot himself in the foot during the ill-fated raid.
Three men burst in to a bank in northern Parana, two of the men held up the tellers and demanded money while the third stood at the door to keep a look out for the cops. Everything had been going to plan until the lookout lost his grip on one of his guns and managed to shoot himself in the foot, he managed to limp away with his accomplices but was picked up by police the following morning.
Officers said six men were believed to have been involved in the incident but only three appeared on camera. One other man has also been arrested.

He should have shot himself a bit higher to prevent him from contributing to the gene pool.

He should have shot himself a bit higher to prevent him from contributing to the gene pool. I believe a guy in Arizona beat him to it.
