Man Injured After Handgun Goes Off in Salina Theater

SALINA, Kan. (AP) — A Salina theater was evacuated after a man apparently shot himself in the leg with his own concealed handgun. The Salina Journal reports that the theater was evacuated Friday after the handgun went off in the man's pocket, hitting him in the upper leg. Tim Coleman says he was sitting nearby when he heard a pop, smelled gunpowder and the man said "Oh my God! I shot myself." Coleman, an Army mechanic now with the Kansas National Guard, says first he checked to make sure his 14-year-old daughter and her friends were safe. He says people evacuated calmly, and several people called 911. Coleman fixed a tourniquet to stop the man's bleeding and made sure the weapon was secured. Police say the incident remains under investigation. The man's condition is unclear.
