Yes. It appears, he accidentally shot himself. What an unfortunate accident.

I hate raccoons. I've chased off black bears, rattlesnakes, and many a mangy dog with naught but a cold stare and a firm step.

But when I tried that on a 12-lb raccoon the size of a basketball, the cursed thing charged me and chased me down the street, up the stairs, and scratched up my hastily barred front door.

No time in my life have I ever wished more that I had a baseball bat, or even a broomstick.

Gun accidents are nothing to sneeze at.

Police said it was then he realized he had accidentally shot himself in the shin.

Pace's son drove him to the hospital for treatment. His injuries are non-life threatening, police said.

It's a miracle he missed all of those vital organs in the shinnal region.
