Accidental Shooting at Downtown Disney

The Orange County Sheriff's Office received a telephone call in reference to a shooting in the parking lot near a theater complex at Downtown Disney on Saturday.

The call apparently was made by the 12 year old son of a man who accidentally shot himself.  According to investigators, it appears as though the man was returning to his car with his son and, while getting into the car, the mans semiautomatic handgun accidentally discharged striking him in the left leg.

The man was transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center where he was treated for what appears to be a non-life threatening wound. He is said to be in stable condition according to Jim Solomons with the Orange County Sheriff's Office.
