Man Accidentally Shoots Himself With Sawed-Off Shotgun At Port Authority
Authorities say that a man carrying a sawed-off shotgun inside a gym bag accidentally shot himself in the leg at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City on Saturday.
The 35-year-old Worcester, Massachusetts, man was waiting in line to board a bus at about 6:00 a.m. when his foot tapped his gym bag, triggering the weapon, Port Authority spokesman Joseph Pentangelo said.
The unidentified man was transported to a local hospital where he was treated for a non-life threatening injury.
Pentangelo said that charges are pending against the man.
The gun reportedly survived the incident. There is no word on whether the man’s ego will recover, nor do we care.
