A man in Indiana accidentally shot himself in the penis, police said.

The incident occurred on Thursday around 6:45 a.m. Police say the man was carrying a 9mm handgun in his waist band – without a holster – when it began to slip. He reached down to adjust the gun and it fired.

The bullet entered just above his penis and exited his scrotum, police said.

The man – identified as 46-year-old Mark Anthony Jones – does not have an Indiana Handgun License, according to police.

The case will be sent to the Grant Co. Prosecutors office for review.
