A man reportedly shot himself in the butt Tuesday night (Aug. 14) at a movie theater in Reno. Police reports say a 56-year old man accidentally shot himself when a gun he had brought into the theater accidentally discharged.

Reports of shots fired started coming in to Reno police around 8:40pm. Witnesses say the man was adjusting himself in his seat when the gun fired. Witnesses then said the man got up and apologized and then left the theater.

The man was already gone by the time police arrived, but they later caught up with him at a Reno hospital where he was being treated for a non-life threatening gunshot wound.

The man, who has a permit to carry a concealed weapon, told police that the gun fell out of his pocket and when it hit the floor it discharged.
