A 20-year-old Tacoma man accidentally shot himself in the leg while in his car Wednesday morning in Tacoma, Tacoma police reported.

The man told officers he was clearing his gun to it put away before getting to his second job, Tacoma police spokesman Mark Fulghum said. The gun went off and the man was shot in the leg. The injury was not life threatening.

The shooting occurred in the 1700 block of South 38th Street shortly after 6 a.m.

Troopers found the man, Fulghum said.

The man had just gotten done with his pizza delivery job and was headed to the second job at the time of the shooting.

He was the only one in the car at the time, Fulghum said.

    I notice this piece is “UNCATEGORIZED”.

    What? You don’t have a category for “Pizza easting self inflicted gun shot wounds?” I’m sure they happen more often than you think. What kind of a newspaper is this? (smirk)
