LITTLE NECK — A 23-year-old man accidentally shot himself in the foot last week inside his Little Neck home, the NYPD said.
According to police, the man, whose name was not released, accidentally shot himself in the foot with a target rifle inside his home, on 37th Avenue near 254th Street in Little Neck, and was taken to North Shore Hospital for minor injuries. Police said there was no criminality suspected in the incident and the man has been recovering from his injury.
Neighbors outside the home said the family was as quiet as the neighborhood they lived in and did not suspect any malicious behavior coming from the 23-year-old man.
