43-year-old Rhonney Jacobs, of Norfolk, Virginia was speeding down his road when some of his neighbors yelled at him to slow down.
According to a witness, "My friends were standing right there in the yard and the guy came flying by and they were like 'slow down, there's kids' and the guy did a U-turn and pulled over."
Witnesses say Jacobs got out of his car, waving around a gun, a .45-caliber handgun.
During the confrontation with the people who had told him to slow down, Jacobs unintentionally discharged the gun, shooting himself in the upper leg.
"He was holding his groin and there was blood everywhere," said a witness, "I'm just happy none of the kids got hurt."
Jacobs was charged with discharging a firearm and brandishing a firearm.
