HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A man trying to break into a local gun shop had a misfire. In fact, he left bleeding, empty handed and is now a wanted man.

In the darkness early Sunday morning, May 6, a man walked around outside J.C.'s Gun and Tackle Shop on Jordan Lane.

The man apparently tried cutting his way into the door.

He spent several hours trying and actually cut his hand. That left some blood behind so they can check his DNA.

He also knocked over a shelf, triggering the alarm.

And with that, he took off.

Surveillance video shows him running from the building - empty handed and with one of those hands bleeding.

If you know who he is, you could get up to $1,000. Call 256-53-CRIME with your anonymous tip.
