Man Accidentally Shoots Himself in the Leg at a Phoenix Wal-Mart

Police say a man accidentally shot himself in the leg while in line at a Wal-Mart store in Phoenix, Arizona on Saturday. Whoops!

Phoenix police spokesman Officer James Holmes said the man had a gun on his hip and it went off accidentally. AZFamily spoke to a woman named Christa Allejandro, who was checking out at the store when she heard a loud bang:

"It sounded like a balloon. ... We were in the aisle paying for our stuff and then the next thing you know, a couple of aisles down from me, we hear a gunshot and we see a man cover his belly."

She explained that she was there to get supplies for her son's birthday "and next thing you know, all this chaos, and now it's shut down." The shot caused confusion and panic among shoppers and the store was evacuated.

Holmes said the man's injuries were not life-threatening and no one else was hurt.
