A young man from Bullhead City, Arizona, accidentally shot himself in a rather delicate area earlier today.

It was reported at 12:24 a.m. July 10. Mohave County Sheriff's deputies were called to Valley View Medical Center in reference to a man with a gunshot wound.

When they arrived, they learned that the 19-year-old man was driving on Highway 95 with a gun tucked into his pants.

When he attempted to take the gun out of his pants, it discharged and he shot himself.

The young man was airlifted to Sunrise Medical Center in Las Vegas with a gunshot wound to his penis.
