A Bullhead City teenager was flown to Sunrise Medical Center for treatment after accidentally shooting himself in the penis early Monday. Mohave County Sheriff’s office spokeswoman Trish Carter said the accidental shooting occurred while the 19-year-old man was driving along Highway 95 at 12:24 a.m.
Carter said it is not known why the teen grabbed his firearm while driving and that the gun was unsecured in the front of his pants when it discharged. She said the victim drove himself to a local hospital before he was flown to Las Vegas.
The incident remains under investigation.
