An Indiana man who mistakenly pulled the trigger on his gun as it was tucked into his front waistband may face charges.
According to Marion Police, officers met with 46-year-old Mark Anthony Jones in the emergency room at a local hospital where he was being treated for a gunshot wound to his penis.
“Jones reported that the Hi Point 9mm he was carrying in his waistband (without a holster) began to slip,” a press release notes. “He reached down to adjust the gun and the gun discharged.
“The bullet entered just above his penis and exited his scrotum.”
Police pointed out that Jones does not possess a license to carry a handgun.
According to Deputy Police Chief Stephen D. Dorsey, the case is being sent to Grant County prosecutors for review.
