A Kentucky man accidentally shot himself after setting his pistol on a toilet paper dispenser while using a restaurant bathroom.


Police in Elizabethtown said the man, whose name was not released, was shot in the leg after the firearm fell from the dispenser at a Fazoli’s restaurant and accidentally fired.

Investigators said the bullet trajectory and other evidence supported the man’s story.

The gun owner, who had a concealed carry permit, was taken at an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

No charges have been filed, and the incident remains under investigation.
