Man shoots own testicles during robbery

The wound is "consistent with somebody putting a gun in his pants" and he was hospitalized

The Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. — Police in Portland, Ore., say a man suspected of shooting a neighbor shot himself in the groin while trying to leave the scene of the crime.

Sgt. Pete Simpson tells The Oregonian the 40-year-old man's wound is "consistent with somebody putting a gun in his pants."

The initial shooting happened Tuesday night during an apparent robbery attempt a downtown apartment building near Portland State University.

The 32-year-old man who was shot ran to a grocery store for help. He was later taken to the hospital with a leg wound.

Police say that as the suspect left the scene, he accidentally shot himself in the testicles.

The alleged gunman is being treated for the self-inflicted gunshot wound.
