DERRY — A local man accidentally shot himself in the leg Wednesday evening at his apartment at Fairway Drive, according to police.
No criminal charges have been filed at this time, but that could change as the investigation unfolds, according to Capt. George Feole of the Derry Police Department.
“We are investigating the incident as a reckless conduct right now,” he said.
Police received the call about 6 p.m. and responded to 19 Fairway Drive where they found an adult man with a gunshot wound from an apparent accidental discharge. He was transported to Parkland Medical Center by ambulance, Feole said.
The victim’s identity was not disclosed, but will be if the investigation results in criminal charges, the captain said.
Neither Feole nor Derry Fire Department were able to classify the seriousness of the man’s injury.
