CHANDLER, AZ - Chandler police say a 27-year-old man accidentally shot himself in the groin outside a grocery store Tuesday night.
It happened in the parking lot of the Fry's Food Store at Elliot and Alma School roads.
According to the police report, the man had his fiancee's pink pistol tucked in the front waistband of his pants when the gun accidentally fired.
The bullet hit the man's penis and then went through one of his legs.
He was then taken to the hospital and underwent surgery.
Police said it's not clear how bad the injuries were but called them non-life threatening.
Chandler police spokesman Joe Favazzo said the man may have been under the influence of prescription drugs at the time of the incident, based partly on the way he was behaving.
