A Colorado Springs man is recovering after police say he accidentally shot himself while cleaning his gun.
Police say the 24-year-old was sitting in his car yesterday when he spilled soda on the gun.
After he wiped it clean, police say the weapon discharged as he was replacing the magazine.
He was taken to the hospital with injuries to his left hand, thigh, and calf, but is expected to be okay.
