KUSA - A Colorado Springs man suffered significant injuries to his foot after police say he accidentally shot himself.

Just before 11 a.m. Friday morning officers responded to the 1900 block of South El Paso Street for reports of an accidental shooting. Investigators say a 53 year-old resident accidentally discharged a handgun in the house and the round struck his foot, causing significant injury.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment. While the incident appears to be an accident, officers are interested in speaking with a witness regarding her account of the incident.

Charges will not be filed until the conclusion of the investigation.
