Canandaigua, N.Y. A Canandaigua man was sent to the hospital Nov. 16 after he was accidentally shot by his own gun, said Ontario County sheriff’s deputies.

According to police, Kevin J. Perrin, 48, was deer hunting on a family member’s property, and he had a .44-caliber revolver in a holster on his belt. At 10 a.m., he stepped over a large log, which caused something — possibly a tree branch — to enter in the revolver’s trigger guard and cause the gun to discharge, deputies said. Perrin was shot in the lower part of his right leg, police added.
