A 27-year-old man accidentally shot himself Thursday after starting an argument with and then pointing the weapon at a juvenile, according to a press release from Gadsden Police Capt. Bobby Jackson.
A 17-year-old male told police he was at a friend’s house on Shahan Street when the older man asked him to step into a room to talk. The juvenile said the man accused him of breaking into his house and pulled out a pistol and pointed it at his head. They struggled and the gun went off, striking the 27-year-old in the arm.
Both men ran off in different directions and both eventually went to the emergency room for treatment. The investigation is ongoing.
