(WXIA) Our NBC News partners at WXIA are reporting that a Macon man was treated at a hospital in Macon this past Thursday, after he accidentally shot himself in the penis.

The man was parked at the gas station at about 9:30 p.m. when he attempted to holster his .45.

Immediately after the gun went off, he drove to a friend's house.

When he got to the friends house, he took off his pants and saw that he had "shot himself in the penis and that the bullet exited out of his buttocks." The spent round fell onto the floor.

The man's friend drove him to the hospital and he was then transferred to the Medical Center of Central Georgia.
