Investigators say he bent over to get the corn kernel out of his boot when the gun discharged, shooting him in the leg.

Police say the gun didn't have a safety or a hammer, so they're investigating whether the man mishandled the weapon at some point in the incident. He's currently not facing any charges and is expected to recover from his injury.
