A 65-year-old man accidentally shot himself in the leg about 4:30 p.m. Thursday in the Southridge parking lot.
According to Greendale Police Department logs, the man was attempting to secure the weapon in his vehicle when the gun discharged. Paramedics transported him to the hospital.
The log also showed a 21-year-old man was arrested in the incident, but the reason wasn't clear.
It's the second time in a little more than a year that a gun was accidentally fired on Southridge property. In November 2011, an off-duty Milwaukee police officer inadvertently discharged his weapon while shopping.
