Armed Security Guard Shoots Himself in the Leg

Guns don't shoot people. People shoot people. Oh

An armed security guard shot a man last night in the SOMA neighborhood: himself.

No, really.

Here's what happened: According to police, the 40-year-old security guard finished his shift and had just got into his car at about 11:15 p.m. when his gun fired. Apparently, when he was fastening his seatbelt (aren't seatbelts supposed to protect you?), it triggered the gun in his holster to discharge, firing a bullet into his right leg.

Ouch!
