A Gadsden man accidentally shot himself over the weekend.
The shooting took place inside the victim’s residence in the 200 block of North 3rd Street in East Gadsden at around 5:30 Saturday morning.
Gadsden Police Captain Bobby Jackson said the 35 year told police, that, after a night of partying at local night clubs he and his friends were discussing going to an area firing range later that day.
At that point, he took out his pistol and began twirling it on his finger, and the gun went off.
He shot himself in the stomach, however the bullet did not exit his back; he said he could feel the bullet under his skin, so he took a knife and cut it out himself; his friends did manage to convince him to go to Gadsden Regional to be checked out – and he is apparently doing fine.
