GALVESTON — A man was rushed to the hospital Thursday after he accidentally shot himself in the leg, authorities said.
Police responded to a call about the shooting shortly after 5 p.m., but officers found him shortly before 6 p.m. on 45th Street near Avenue Q 1/2 and called for an ambulance crew, Galveston police Lt. Michael Gray said.
“An initial investigation leads us to believe it was accidental and self-inflicted,” Gray said. An ambulance took the man to the University of Texas Medical Branch for treatment. His name and condition weren’t immediately available.
