PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) – A man apparently shot himself by accident while showing Florida bar customers his gun.

The Pensacola News Journal reported the man was displaying his gun Thursday night and made a quick motion as if putting it into a pretend holster below his shoulder. When he did, the gun discharged and a bullet hit the man’s torso. The bar manager showed the newspaper video of the incident.

The man quickly left and checked himself into a hospital. Police contacted him and were determining whether to file charges.
