A Southeastern Kentucky man is hospitalized after shooting himself
A Laurel County man is in the hospital after accidentally shooting himself. The Laurel County sheriff's department says the incident took place at a home on Blackwater Church Road just outside of London.
When deputies arrived at the house, they found Stephen Nolan with a gunshot wound to the leg. Deputies say Nolan loaded a pistol not knowing there was a round in the chamber, pulled the trigger to disengage the firing pin, and accidentally shot himself.
Nolan was airlifted to UK hospital. His condition is not being released at this time.
