Lorain police are investigating an early-morning shooting that appears to have been accidental.

Police were called to Indiana Avenue between E and F streets around 6:30 a.m. for reports of shots fired. Lorain police Capt. Roger Watkins said one man appears to have shot another accidentally.

“They were horsing around with the gun, and a guy got shot in the leg,” Watkins said, describing the wound as non-life-threatening, adding that the shooting victim drove himself to a local hospital.

Neither the victim nor the shooter’s names have been released. The matter remains under investigation.
