Man Shoots Himself In Thigh With Homemade Shotgun

STOCKTON (CBS13) – A 20-year-old Stockton man had to undergo emergency surgery Monday after he accidentally shot himself in the leg.

The man was found in the parking lot of a store in the 2400 block of E. Main Street in Stockton with a wound to his upper-thigh. The weapon was a crudely made 12-gauge “zip gun”.

Police say the incident happened while the man was allegedly trying to hide the gun in his pants.
