A man was taken to the hospital in Arizona this week after shooting himself in the groin area inside a Walmart in the town of Buckeye. The local police department tweeted on Tuesday officers were working what appeared to be a “self-inflicted accidental shooting” inside Walmart.
The Arizona Republic newspaper reported that the incident occurred at around 6:30 p.m. in the meat department after a semiautomatic handgun that was being held in the man’s waistband began to slip. The gun, which was not in a holster, discharged as he attempted to reposition it, the man told cops. It was not immediately clear if the man would be charged by the local police department. The man’s identity and condition at the hospital were not made public by law enforcement.
