A Grand Forks man was taken to the hospital Tuesday after shooting himself in the foot.

Police say they got a call a little after 4:00pm to 1232 Oak Street in Grand Forks for an accidental discharge of a gun. When they got there, they found that 22-year-old Gregory Plautz had accidentally shot himself in the foot.

Sgt. Jason Dvorak with the Grand Forks Police Department says that Plautz was taking the small caliber gun out of its holster when he dropped it. The gun was loaded- and it hit the floor and fired, sending a bullet into Plautz' foot.

Altru emergency crews took Plautz to the hospital for his injuries. Dvorak says Plautz's injuries were not life-threatening and that he will not be charged with a crime as it appears the shooting was accidental.
