An area man reported that he shot himself with his own gun during a car accident in Dayton on Tuesday.
Dayton Police received a call about a hit and run accident around 1:21 a.m. Tuesday. When police arrived to Grandview Medical Center, the officer noticed a red Pontiac Grand Am with heavy damage and deployed air bags parked in the emergency room lot, according to a police report.
The officer spoke to the driver of the car who said he had lost control of his vehicle near West Stewart Street and struck a telephone pole.
One of two passengers told the officer that he had been cleaning his gun in his lap in the front seat of the car when the weapon “went off” and struck his left hand. Police checked the vehicle and found a bullet hole pointing inward, indicating that a bullet entered the car from the outside, according to a police report.
The driver of the car then contradicted the passenger’s story, telling police that three of four gunshots rang out when he picked up the passenger. The driver said the gunshots startled him, causing him to lose control of his car, according to a police report.

— One man was arrested and two suspects are being sought in the burglary of Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski's house.
While the Patriots were playing in Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis on Feb. 4, police were called to Gronkowski's house in Foxborough, Massachusetts, for a burglary.
According to a heavily redacted police report, the break-in at Gronkowski's home happened just five minutes after he scored his first of two touchdowns.
The report shows the burglary happened at 8:50 p.m., during the third quarter of the Patriots' game against the Eagles.
On Friday morning, police executed a search warrant at the home of Anthony Almeida in Randolph. As a result of the search, police arrested Almeida, 31, on charges of breaking and entering, two counts of receiving stolen property, and malicious destruction of property.
He was arraigned Friday afternoon.
Almeida pleaded not guilty to the charges and was released on $5,000 bail. He was ordered to stay away from the victims and is due back in court on April 20.
Police said 26-year-old Shayne Denn of Tewksbury and 28-year-old Eric Tyrrell of Foxborough are still at large.
Police said an Apple watch, a Rolex watch and two rare coins from the 1800s have been recovered. A firearm has not yet been recovered.
According to the police report, the burglars were not able to get into Gronkowski's bedroom; it was found locked and secured.

Lt.-Col. Arnaud Beltrame, 45, was shot by 26-year-old Redouane Lakdim as he entered the Super U market in Trèbes on Friday.
Beltrame "fell as a hero" and showed "exceptional courage", French President Emmanuel Macron said.

Interior Minister Gerard Collomb announced Beltrame’s death Saturday, which raises the number of people killed to four.
"France will never forget his heroism, his bravery, his sacrifice," Collomb tweeted.
When Beltrame went inside the supermarket, he left his phone on so police could hear his interactions with the gunman, Collomb told CNN.
As soon as they heard gunfire, police went in and killed the gunman.
