BRIGHTON, Mich. (AP) Authorities say a man accidentally shot himself in a home improvement store with the gun he was legally carrying.

WHMI-FM reports the 32-year-old man from the Livingston County community of Green Oak Township was shot in the buttocks Thursday evening at the Home Depot in Brighton. Police say it appears he was reaching for his wallet when he inadvertently grabbed the pistol and a shot fired.

The man was treated for minor injuries at a nearby hospital.

Police say the man had a license to carry the concealed weapon and no charges will be filed.
