A security guard in Trinidad and Tobago was charged with illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition after he accidentally shot off his own *****.
Police in the Caribbean island nation said they were called at around 8 a.m. Sunday by a resident of Rio Claro who heard a gunshot coming from a parked car, the Trinidad and Tobago Guardian newspaper reported.
When they arrived at the scene, police found a 33-year-old man slumped behind the car's steering wheel, bleeding from his groin. Police said officers found a .38-calibre gun with four rounds of ammunition in the man's front right pocket, the Guardian reported.
The man was taken to hospital and placed under police guard.
Police said he didn't have a licence for the weapon, the Guardian reported.
