An investigation revealed that 67-year-old Jamy Patterson shot himself at his residence in the 3800 block of East Devlin Avenue. Patterson was sitting on the couch loading and unloading his firearm when a bullet got stuck in the chamber and the gun went off by itself.
The bullet struck his calf just below his knee. Medical crews responded and transported Patterson to Kingman Regional Medical Center.
