A man is facing multiple charges after he accidentally shot himself at a gathering in Westchester, police said.

New Rochelle Montefiore Hospital contacted New Rochelle Police to report a gunshot victim had walked into the emergency room at around 5:25 p.m. on Friday, May 14, said Captain Cosmo Costa of the New Rochelle PD.

A subsequent investigation by New Rochelle Police detectives revealed the following: Kareen J. Manns, age 27, of New Rochelle, had been present at a gathering at the pavilion at City Park when he accidentally shot himself in the leg. 

The injury was non-life-threatening, according to hospital staff.

Manns was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and first-degree reckless endangerment.
