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.
