DENISON, TX -- A shooting that is believed to be accidental sent one man to the hospital, after he apparently shot himself with his own gun inside his truck.

The shooting happened around 6:30 p.m. outside the Motel 6 off Old Pottsboro Road and  Highway 75. The man was shot in the thigh, according to police Sgt. Paul Neumann.

Witnesses say the man in his 30's lives in the area, but had been staying at the motel. He was in his white pickup truck when the gun went off.

Emergency crews originally planned to land a medical helicopter next to the IHOP restaurant, but the man was then transported by ambulance to the hospital for surgery.
