A Southern California man shot himself in the leg today in an accidental shooting, police believe.

The San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports that police showed up to a house on Paul Drive in Whittier this afternoon where a man was alone with a gunshot wound to his thigh. They deduced that the injury was self-inflicted.

But police said they didn't have much more information because the victim wasn't cooperating with them.
