“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.
