LYNNWOOD, Wash. -- A man was shot in the testicles Sunday afternoon after a gun in his waistband accidentally discharged, police said.
The man was shopping at the Lowe's hardware store in Lynnwood around 12:30 p.m. when the gun went off, said Shannon Sessions with Lynnwood police.
Medics were called and the man was rushed to Harborview Medical Center, but the extent of his injuries is not known.
No one else was injured, and the man appeared to be shopping alone, Sessions said.
Sessions said it was legal for the man to be carrying the gun and it's unlikely he'll face any charges.
That's the least of his worries.
