Marine prefers shooting self to overseas deployment

'Adam D. Welter, 20, told police the driver of a disabled pickup truck shot him early Monday in the left shoulder, said Capt. Bob Aldrich, of the Anoka County Sheriff's Office. However, Welter apparently wanted to be relieved from an overseas assignment scheduled to begin Monday, and he has acknowledged shooting himself in the left shoulder hours before he was scheduled to leave and making up a story about being attacked, authorities said.'
