A South Carolina man working at the local Veterans Affairs office unintentionally shot himself in the hand and the leg while trying to unload a revolver he had with him in his office.
This was the man's private handgun as his job at the VA does not require him to carry a weapon. It is not against the law to carry a weapon on VA property. Fortunately, none of his co-workers were shot when the gun was fired.
The man was taken to a regional hospital where he was listed in fair condition.
