A man with a concealed carry permit was adjusting his sock when his gun went off by accident.

Augusta Police Chief Tyler Brewer called it a “knucklehead situation.” The bullet went through the man’s foot, traveled 50 feet and hit a woman in the calf. The woman was treated and released and the man is hospitalized with non life-threatening injuries. Brewer said he’ll present the case to prosecutors because it’s illegal to have a gun on school grounds.
