US man shoots own head at gun range

An American man is recovering in a Bangkok hospital after being seriously hurt when he shot himself in the head at a shooting range for tourists in Kandal province on May 21. Mark Patrick Cody, 33, was admitted to Calmette hospital in Phnom Penh in critical condition before being transferred by the US embassy to a hospital in the Thai capital, said Kandal police chief Iv Chamroeun. After firing seven of his ten rounds at the range in Kambol commune, Cody shot the eighth round into the right side of his jaw. It exited through the back of his head,

Chamroeun said. “There is no law in Cambodia against attempted suicide … but I’ve written a letter to the governor of Kandal province to advise that the shooting range be more careful,” he said.
