JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A Florida man reportedly shot himself in the penis when he sat down on his gun last week, according to a police report obtained by WJAX-TV.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office report says a 38-year-old man accidentally sat on the gun in the driver’s seat of his car outside of his girlfriend’s home on Friday.

The man’s girlfriend told police that he came running into the home and she saw the gunshot wound.

She took the man to a hospital where he went into surgery.

The man has a previous conviction for cocaine possession and might face charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
