(KOIN) — Deputies say a Northeast Oregon man accidentally shot himself in the leg during an argument outside his home Monday night.

The Morrow County Sheriff’s Office reports that 67-year-old Venancio Carrillo was chambering a round in his handgun when it discharged outside his Irrigon home. Carrillo had gone outside to investigate what appeared to be a dispute between another resident of his home and a man in a vehicle  parked outside.

Venancio was taken by ambulance to Good Shepard Hospital.

The sheriff’s office is investigating. No charges have been filed at this time.
