A 24-year-old Lincoln man is recovering after accidentally shooting himself with his handgun while trying to clean it, a Lincoln police spokeswoman said Tuesday.

The man’s roommate drove him from their home, near North 86th Street and Sunridge Road, to the Bryan East Campus emergency room Sunday evening, Officer Angela Sands said.

The shot pierced his palm and went into his left leg, Sands said.

His injuries are not considered to be life-threatening.
