Man shoots leg leaving Savannah gun show

SAVANNAH, Ga. -- A man accidentally shot himself in the leg after leaving a gun show in downtown Savannah on Sunday afternoon.

“I don’t know if he was loading it, unloading it, cleaning it, but he was fiddling around with it and it went off,” said Savannah-Chatham police spokesman Julian Miller.

Police are still investigating the incident. Miller said the man, whose identity has not been released, was being treated for non life-threatening injuries.

This was the second time in 2012 a man has shot himself upon leaving a gun show in Savannah. On Feb. 5, Charles Lake of Rincon was exiting a gun show at the Savannah Civic Center when he discharged a round into his leg while re-loading a pistol he had bought at the show.
