Darwin Award Nominee #1 for 2007

I noticed another blogger that I read regularly lamenting the first murder in her city for 2007. I usually don't notice stories of such things in ATL, but couldn't resist this story: Celebratory shot kills 1 in Cobb.

The story, from the Atlanta Journal continues,

When the clock struck midnight, the 20 or so revelers who had gathered at a Mableton house retreated to the back yard and rang in the new year in what, police say, has become an all-too-common practice: firing guns into the air.

But early Monday morning, one of the bullets fell from the sky and hit a 52-year-old guest in the back. His death is believed to be the first fatal shooting in metro Atlanta in 2007.

Haven't these folks heard that what goes up must come down? Ah well, the thinning continues...
