Man Faces Charges After Accidentally Shooting Himself

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Police in Savannah say charges have been filed against a man who accidentally shot himself in one of his fingers.

Authorities say 23-year-old Alajuawon Williams was arrested after being discharged from the Memorial University Medical Center Monday afternoon because police determined the gun he shot himself with was stolen.

Investigators say Williams told them he was checking to see if the weapon was loaded when he accidentally pulled the trigger.

The man has been charged with theft and receiving stolen property. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.
