A Virginia man was allegedly shot by his brother over the weekend — but it’s what he did in front of investigators that left authorities in disbelief.

After being shot in the neck and nose, the 23-year-old unidentified victim actually spat up one of the bullets, WTVR reported. He was being interviewed by police at the time.

He was later taken to a local area hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries.

According to WTVR, the man’s 26-year-old brother was taken into custody by authorities.
