Man Accidentally Shoots Self in Leg at Phoenix Wal-Mart

Guns make us all so much safer:

Police said a man accidentally shot himself in the leg while at a Wal-Mart store in Phoenix on Saturday.

Phoenix police spokesman Officer James Holmes said the man had a gun on his hip and it went off.

Christa Allejandro was checking out at the store near 16th Avenue and Bethany Home Road when she heard a loud bang.

“It sounded like a balloon,” she said. “We were in the aisle paying for our stuff and then the next thing you know, a couple of aisles down from me, we hear a gunshot and we see a man cover his belly.”

Holmes said the man’s injuries were not life-threatening.
