Man actually not shot in Tompkins Square Park

From today's NYPD Daily Blotter in the Post:

A bonehead who accidentally shot himself on the Lower East Side was busted after he claimed to have been shot in Tompkins Square Park, authorities said.

Fernando Torres, 62, shot himself in the hand and thigh in his apartment last Sunday at 5 a.m., sources said.

A neighbor told police he saw Torres shove a revolver into a bag along with bloody clothing, which the bumbling triggerman tossed into a garbage bin, cops said.

Torres then walked into Bellevue Hospital and claimed he'd been shot in the park, cops said.

And this may explain why detectives were in Tompkins Square Park last Sunday morning...
