GRANTVILLE, Pa. (WHTM) -

A man visiting from Illinois accidentally shot himself in the leg with his friend's gun.

On Feb. 4 at around 6:30 p.m., a State Trooper responded to a call at a home in the 2700 block of Sand Beach Road in East Hanover Township.

The victim, 24-year-old Illinois native Kevin Sheibe, was in town on a visit. He was reportedly cleaning his friend's Smith & Wesson M&P pistol while the friend was out of the house when it accidentally discharged. The bullet struck him in the left thigh.

Sheibe was taken by ambulance to Hershey Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
