Man accidentally shoots himself in penis while driving to Vegas

Las Vegas

A man was hospitalized after he accidentally shot himself in the penis (ouch!) on the way to Las Vegas.

19-year-old Matthew Scott McKinney was driving from Arizona to Sin City on U.S. Highway 95 when his firearm went off just before 12:30 am Monday morning, reports the Las Vegas Review Journal.

Police are not sure yet why McKinney tried to grab his gun, which was unsecured in the front of his pants, when it fired.
