Man accidentally shoots himself at Antioch Walmart, last Friday
By Sgt. Tom Fuhrmann, Antioch Police Investigations Bureau
On Friday, February 21, 2014 at 10:10 PM, Antioch police officers were dispatched to Walmart for a man who had been shot in the leg. The 27-year-old victim told officers he was walking with a relative when he heard a shot and felt pain in his leg. The victim stated at that time he had no idea who shot him. Evidence at the scene did not support the victim’s statement to police. The victim was treated at an area hospital and he was later released.
A follow-up interview with the victim revealed the victim was in possession of a gun when it accidentally went off and he shot himself in the leg. The case is being sent to the District Attorney’s Office for review.
