FRESNO, Calif. – Fresno police say a reputed gang member shot himself with his own gun -- the second such shooting in as many days.
Police tell the Fresno Bee that officers answering a report of shots fired early Sunday found 28-year-old Randy Mcbride with a gunshot wound to the leg.
Sgt. Tony Bustos says it appears that Mcbride was in a home when he heard gunshots, put a sawed-off shotgun in his pants and went outside to investigate. Bustos says when Mcbride tried to draw the gun, he pulled the trigger and shot himself.
He was treated at a hospital.
Police say Mcbride could face charges of being a felon in possession of a gun.
Police say Saturday night, another gang member accidentally wounded himself while threatening someone with a revolver.
