Man Shot in the Head Drives to Hospital

PORT ORANGE, Fla. (AP) -- A man who woke up with a head wound drove himself to a hospital, where doctors found a bullet lodged in his brain. His girlfriend killed herself when she was contacted by police.

Glen Thomas Betterley, 53, noticed that his head was bleeding when he woke up Thursday morning and asked his girlfriend if she had struck him. The woman said she didn't know.

When the bleeding wouldn't stop, Betterley drove to work, left a note for his boss and went to the hospital. Doctors treated him for a gunshot to the forehead. He was in stable condition Friday.

While Betterley was being treated, police said they called his girlfriend and heard a gunshot. When authorities went to the home, they found Emma Lorene Larsen, 65, dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot to the head.
