A robbery suspect who accidentally shot himself in the testicles has been arrested.
Joseph Johnson was charged with robbery, assault and felon in possession of a firearm, KGW.com reports.
Portland Police say Johnson was arrested on Tuesday night after his neighbour was shot during a robbery.
In a news statement reported by KATU.com, Sgt Pete Simpson said: “As Johnson ran from the scene, he shoved the gun into the front of his waistband and shot himself in the testicles.”
Johnson was treated for his injuries before he was booked into Multnomah County Jail.
“The suspect’s wound is consistent with somebody putting a gun in his pants,” Sgt Simpson told the Oregonian.
The victim, who was shot in the leg, is recovering in hospital.
