A man showing off his gun accidentally shot himself in a Lincoln City store, according to police.
Oh Boy here we go.
Officers responded to McKay’s Market on the 800 block of Southwest Highway 1010 at 7:36 p.m. Sunday.
A man was found at the scene with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his groin area and leg, according to police.
Investigators said the 29-year-old man was waiting in the checkout line, when he unholstered his Glock 9mm semi-automatic pistol from his waistband “so that he could show it off to a friend.”
Yea, as you tend to do.
As the man put the gun back in the front of his pants, he accidentally pulled the trigger, according to police.
Police said the bullet narrowly missed his femoral artery. Officers immediately provided first aid before medics arrived to take over treatment.
