Maurice Farrington, a 31-year-old New Haven resident, was rushed to the hospital early Thursday morning after he was discovered in his bedroom with a bullet wound to his penis.

Farrington’s mother, with whom he lives, was awakened by what sounded like a gunshot the sound of dogs barking some time after midnight Thursday. Although she saw nothing when looked outside, she then heard her son screaming. She discovered her son, bloodied, and called the police.

Farrington was in serious but stable condition on Thursday afternoon following surgery. Police are still investigating the incident.
