Sometimes we awake in the middle of the night, hearing unidentified sounds, and we’re immediately on edge, believing somebody could have broken in our homes. However, most of the time it’s just the wind, our neighbors, our pets or just our own imagination that’s playing tricks with our mind.
Such similar case occurred when a man from Lynden, Washington, awoke in the middle of the night. He thought he had heard something, which he believed had been the sound of a potential burglar. Searching his home, he caught eye on the burglar. But when he decided to take measures against the robber, things got absurdly messed up. The man pulled out a gun and fired several gunshots at the male figure he had seen. However, it turned out that he had been shooting at his own reflection in a mirror. He couldn’t realize it at first, because he got terrified from his own imagination.
The man didn’t injure himself, but managed to shatter his mirror into pieces.
