TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (98)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of the Associated Press (from Wednesday, January 17; link good at time of posting):
A man trying to steal a car at gunpoint from a couple ended up being shot himself, Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott says.

Harold Levar Jeffcoat, 29, was arrested Sunday at the hospital where he was being treated for a gunshot wound to the buttocks, Lott said.

Jeffcoat was shot Saturday night after he stuck a gun into the stomach of a man getting into his car at a Wal-Mart in suburban northeast Richland County and demanded his keys, deputies said.

A woman in the passenger seat pulled a gun from the glove compartment and fired five shots at Jeffcoat, hitting him once, investigators said.
