Indiana Man Accidentally Shoots Himself During Store Robbery

KOKOMO, Ind. (AP) — An Indiana man is out of the hospital and in jail after police say he accidentally shot himself in the groin while robbing a convenience store.

The incident was captured on the store’s surveillance camera.

A clerk told police a man carrying a semiautomatic handgun entered the Village Pantry Wednesday demanding cash and a pack of cigarettes.

Police say surveillance video shows the man shooting himself as he places the gun in the waistband of his pants. The clerk wasn’t injured.

Police later found 25-year-old Derrick Kosch at a home with a gunshot wound to his right testicle and lower left leg.

He’s charged with armed robbery, criminal recklessness and battery.
