Three gunshot wounds weren’t enough to keep a Florida man from catching a flight to New York, MyFoxTampaBay.com reported Sunday.
William Notaro, 37, of Dunedin, Fla., was playing cards early Saturday before his flight to New York later that morning. After an argument around the poker table, Notaro told police a female card shark pulled out a handgun and shot him three times, MyFoxTampaBay reported.
Struck in the torso and arm, Notaro’s wounds were dressed by a friend so that he could get to the airport and board a plane to Albany, N.Y.
But during a layover in North Carolina, other passengers noticed Notaro was bleeding, and airport police forced him to go to the hospital, MyFoxTampaBay.com reported. Later, Notaro made it to Albany, where he reportedly gave sheriff’s deputies a conflicting account of the story surrounding the shooting.
Notaro told police not to go after the shooter, and that he will not press charges against her. Regardless, cops are investigating, MyFoxTampaBay reported.
