DETROIT (WXYZ) — A man is in stable condition after accidentally shooting himself twice in one night in Detroit.

Around 2:00 a.m. Saturday, scouts were dispatched to a local hospital on a "Shooting/Cutting RPT" call. Officers arrived and spoke to the 31-year-old victim, who said he shot himself at his home and then later at a bar on the 7000 block of W. Warren where he was dee-jaying.

Police say the victim sustained one gunshot wound to the thigh and was privately taken to a nearby hospital.
