A man with a conceal-carry handgun permit told police he accidentally shot his firearm, injuring himself and another man, early Saturday at Shot Time II, a bar near 31st Street South and Seneca.

Sgt. Ron Hunt said when the man discharged his firearm, a bullet entered his right thigh, exited and then entered the left thigh of a man sitting next to him.

The permit holder was uncooperative with police, who arrested him on suspicion of aggravated battery, Hunt said.
