Responding police officers and detectives began rendering aid to the MacArthur Avenue man, who sustained a non-critical wound in the incident in his home just after 5 p.m., Police Chief Raymond Kovach told Daily Voice.

He was later taken to an area hospital.

"It was determined as a result of the investigation that the discharge was accidental," Capt. Darren Sucorowski said Friday.

The investigation was continuing, he said.
