A concealed carry permit holder accidentally shot himself and another man while sitting in the passenger seat of a car on the city's East Side, Cleveland police said.
The shooting happened about 7 p.m. Sunday near East 103rd Street and Pierpont Avenue.
The bullet ripped through the gun owner's hand before it passed through the driver's right leg and lodged in his left leg, police said.
Emergency medical crews drove the men to hospitals, according to spokesman Sgt. Ali Pillow.
Officers learned the man handling the weapon has a CCW permit, Pillow said. Investigators confiscated the gun.
I'll bet he gets his gun back with a stiff warning to be more careful in the future. What do you think?
