Justin McCall

A Florida man accidentally shot himself in the leg with a gun he stole while breaking into a vehicle, the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office said.

Deputies arrested Justin McCall, 28, on Thursday on charges of grand theft, burglary to a structure, car burglary, and felony violation of probation, local ABC station WEARTV-3 reported citing a release from the deputies.

According to the report, “the incident started Wednesday morning when a woman living on Highway 85 near Crestview called deputies to report a man was outside of her home saying he had been shot. Deputies responded and found McCall with a gunshot wound to his leg. He was taken to a hospital for treatment.”

“The OCSO investigation revealed McCall had been captured on several residential video cameras in the area committing a series of car and residential burglaries,” a release from deputies states.

A homeowner on Zach Avenue told deputies she discovered someone had broken into her car and taken her purse.

“Later while watching a neighbor’s surveillance video, she saw McCall on camera wearing her white Sperry boots, which had been in her home’s garage,” the release states.

“At the time of the crimes, McCall was out on bond for two burglaries. He was also on felony probation for a previous theft of a firearm,” the report states. “Overall, he has 13 felony convictions since 2012 in Florida, including six for burglary, four for grand theft, and one for grand theft of a firearm.”
