A 45-year-old man accidentally shot himself with a gun in Prague on Monday evening and had to be taken to hospital with a serious head injury, a police spokesman said on Tuesday. The incident was likely caused by unprofessional handling of the gun. The police subsequently searched the man’s apartment and found 21 weapons, including several guns and revolvers, a machine gun and a grenade. The man, who didn’t have a firearms license, will be charged with illegal possession of weapons.
