Pinole robber who shot himself found dead in Oakland

SF Chronicle
Sunday, October 29, 2006

(10-29) 20:12 PST -- A suspected robber who accidentally shot himself in the leg while he and another man held up a Pinole liquor store was found dead minutes later in Oakland, authorities said.

The man, identified by authorities as Sharffe Williams, 26, apparently did not seek medical attention for his injuries following the holdup of Appian Liquors on San Pablo Avenue in Pinole.

The robbery occurred just before 1 a.m. Saturday. During the commission of the robbery, one of the suspects accidentally shot himself in the leg inside the store, then he and his accomplice fled in a dark colored full-sized American car, similar to a Ford Crown Victoria, according to Pinole police.

Pinole police found a trail of blood and a handgun at the store.

About 15 minutes later, Oakland police got a call of a body on the street on the 1600 block of 12th Street in West Oakland. The body was identified as that of Williams, who is believed to have bled to death after shooting himself in a major artery.

The two locations are about 15 miles apart.

He must have been trained to shoot by deputy Barney.

Ya remember how in TV westerns if you just wanted to slow a guy down, you'd shoot him in the leg? And the guy would limp for a while but soon would be back to normal?

More likely you'd limp from now on if you didn't bleed to death.

Clipping the femoral artery is a great way to bleed out. That is a huge hose.
