Most people strap on a seat belt for their safety, but that wasn’t the case for an armed security guard in San Francisco.
The guard shot himself in the leg while strapping on his car seat belt Monday night at 11th and Kissling streets, police said. The belt accidentally pressed against his holster, somehow causing the gun to discharge.
The 40-year-old security guard is in stable condition at San Francisco General Hospital following the accidental shooting, police said.
Emergency crews responded around 11:15 p.m. to transport the security guard, police said. Further details were not immediately available.
