ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. - Elizabethtown police say a man was accidentally shot in the leg while using a restaurant bathroom in the central Kentucky city.

Police Sgt. David Neary told The News-Enterprise that the man left his pistol on the toilet-paper dispenser while using the restroom at the Fazoli's restaurant. Neary says the pistol slipped off the dispenser and shot the man in the leg.

Neary says evidence, including the bullet trajectory, supported the man's description of events.

He says the man was taken to an area hospital with a non-life threatening injury.

Police say the man had a concealed carry permit.
