PINELLAS PARK (970 WFLA) – Pinellas Park Police say a man accidentally shot himself Sunday at the Wyoming Antelope Club off of 126th Avenue N.

It happened at 2:30 p.m.

Officers say based on their investigation, a private security company had leased a part of the range for agency qualifications. While one of the participants was re-holstering his weapon, police say he inadvertently pulled the trigger resulting in the discharge of the firearm.

Police say the projectile from the weapon did strike the man in the leg and he was transported to Bayfront Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
