Man Shoots Self In Abdomen Attempting 'Cross-Draw' Move

An Oakmont Drive man required hospital treatment after accidentally shooting himself in the abdomen about 6:15 a.m. Sunday, sheriff's Deputy Michael MacDonald said in a report.

Deputies responded to Takoma Regional Hospital on a report of an accidental gunshot wound.

They spoke with Timothy Gray, 44, who said "he was attempting to attach his gun and holster to his left hip in a cross-draw fashion, when he accidentally discharged the firearm," the report said.

Gray shot himself with a .410 double-barrel Derringer.

"The victim received a through-and-through wound on the left side of his abdomen from the .410 side-by-side Derringer," the report said.

Powder burns were seen on Gray's wound, and evidence of gunpowder on his side, indicating a close-range wound, the report said.

Gray's wife said she was upstairs "when the victim shot himself while in the basement," the report said.

Gray and his wife's version of events support what happened as described, the report said.
