A 15-year-old Antioch boy shot himself in the leg today when he tried to retrieve a gun he had concealed in his waistband, according to police. The shooting occurred shortly before 3 p.m. at a Burger King at 4620 Lone Tree Way, according to Lt. Tammany Brooks. Police were called to the scene on a report of a possible fight, but before they arrived on the scene were told a participant had shot himself. The boy had apparently been involved in a confrontation in the parking lot when he attempted to pull out his gun and accidentally shot himself, Brooks said. He was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
