A 45-year-old Birmingham, Michigan man was legally carrying a .40 Glock handgun while working on his job as a heating and cooling repairman. The man had a concealed weapons permit. He had the gun tucked in the waistband of his pants. As he arrived at a house he went to take the gun out of his pants and leave it in the van.
In the process he unintentionally discharged the gun. According to police the bullet went through the man's penis and lodged in his leg.
His partner asked him if he shot himself but the man was just stunned and couldn't talk for 10 to 15 seconds.
He was taken to the hospital for surgery and is expected to recover.
Prosecutors are reviewing the case to see if charges of reckless discharge of a firearm will be filed.
