Medical, fire, and law enforcement are responding to 32000 block of North Harbor Drive in Fort Bragg after a man accidentally shot himself in the leg with his own firearm.

Scanner traffic beginning around 12:55 p.m. indicated a motorcyclist carrying a firearm on his hip accidentally discharged the weapon shooting him in the leg.

Please remember that this story is unfolding. Information is being reported as we gather it. However, some of the information coming from witnesses and initial official reports could be wrong. We will do our best to get the facts but, in the case that something is inaccurate, we will update with correct information as soon as we can.



  1. And some people be screaming for elementary school teachers to open carry in the classroom. If he had a license to open carry a loaded gun then isn’t a gun safety course required? Safest advice, don’t put one in the chamber unless you plan to shoot, keep the safety on.

  2. Whether he has a concealed carry permit or not it needs to be revoked. He could just as easily killed an innocent bystander.
