An Indiana man, namely Mark Anthony Jones, 46, was rushed to hospital last week after he accidentally shot himself in his genital with an unlicensed handgun, authorities have confirmed.
The man told authorities that he was carrying the gun in his waistband while standing near a Girl Scout cabin in Marion on Thursday, February 28. It's unclear why he was standing there.
Mark told the police that the gun didn't have a holster and thus it began to slip, and when he tried to adjust the gun, it accidentally shot his penis.
The bullet reportedly entered the man's slightly above his penis and exited his scrotum. Police said Mark doesn't have an Indiana Handgun License.
According to the police report, Mark was taken to the Marion General Hospital where he told officers about the incident.
The Grant County Prosecutor’s Office will review the case.
