COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Authorities say a 24-year-old Colorado man accidentally shot himself while cleaning his handgun.
Police say the man, whose name has not been released, was sitting in his vehicle in Colorado Springs when he spilled soda on the gun Saturday afternoon. The man wiped the gun clean, and the weapon accidentally discharged as he was replacing the magazine.
He was taken to a hospital in fair condition after suffering injuries to his left hand, left thigh and left calf.
