CRYSTAL LAKE – A Crystal Lake man shot himself in the hand by accident Monday afternoon, police said.
Crystal Lake fire and police personnel were dispatched about 3:45 p.m. Monday to the 300 block of McHenry Avenue in response to a report of an “unintentional” gunshot wound to the hand.
Emergency crews took the man to an undisclosed hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening, Crystal Lake Police Sgt. Ryan Coutre said Monday night.
“It was, in fact, an accidental discharge,” Coutre said.
Crystal Lake police and fire officials could not be reached Tuesday for details about the incident.
