An Irrigon man was hurt after possibly shooting himself accidentally in the leg, police said.
Venancio Carrillo, 67, reportedly picked up a handgun after a member of his household got into a verbal altercation Monday night with a man in a vehicle in front of their house in the 200 block of South First Street, Morrow County Undersheriff Steven L. Myren said in a news release.
He was trying to place a round in the chamber when the gun fired, sending a bullet into his leg.
There were also indications that another person fired the gun, Myren said.
Never miss a local story.
He was taken by ambulance to Good Shepherd Hospital in Hermiston, Myren said.
