A Marine apparently shot himself by accident Friday inside a guard post at the Marine Corps barracks in Washington, D.C., officials say.
One official with the Marines told Fox News that “early indications are this was a negligent discharge.”
Another said the Marine suffered a gunshot wound to the abdomen, while Marine Corps spokeswoman Capt. Colleen McFadden described the wound as "self-inflicted."
The Marine is now in “stable condition with a non-life threatening injury,” she added.
The shooting happened at the Marine Corps Barracks and Commandant's House around 8 a.m. and is “currently under investigation,” the Marine Corps said in a statement.
