YAKIMA, Wash. -- A 20-year-old man accidentally shot himself in the groin early Sunday morning. It happened on the 700 block of North 24th avenue.
Police say the man was trying to conceal a double barrel shotgun in the front of his pants and accidentally fired it two times.
The gun was found at the home where the shooting took place. They also found a second stolen firearm.
Hospital staff says his injuries are not life-threatening.
Neighbors we spoke to say police are usually seen at the house at least three times a month. They suspect there is gang activity taking place inside. They didn't want to speak on camera out of fear for their safety.
