Troopers: Kodiak man shoots self in knee

Posted: December 27, 2013 - 1:09am

KODIAK — Alaska State Troopers say a 33-year-old Kodiak man is facing charges after shooting himself in the knee with a stolen gun while drinking and driving.

The Kodiak Daily Mirror says the man’s name was not immediately released, pending charges.

Troopers say the man had taken the .44 Magnum pistol without permission from a vehicle on Dec. 18.

Troopers say the man drove around Kodiak with a 25-year-old Anchorage man the next day. According to troopers, the 33-year-old man began drinking while driving and handling the gun, which discharged and hit him in the knee.

Troopers say the passenger was hit by shrapnel.

The driver was being treated a local hospital.

Troopers say they anticipate charges including theft, assault and weapons misconduct to be filed by state prosecutors.
