Anti-abortion protester shoots himself in leg outside clinic
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - An anti-abortion protester is facing a criminal charge after accidentally shooting himself in the leg outside a North Carolina abortion clinic.
Raleigh Police say the shooting occurred Saturday around 9 a.m. outside A Woman’s Choice of Raleigh.
Police say the man fired his weapon accidentally, and he was taken to the hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
He was charged with possession of a firearm at a protest.
Police did not release his name.
The clinic issued a news release criticizing police response to the shooting as insufficient and the criminal charge “a slap on the wrist.”
