Ottawa County Sheriff Stephen Levorchick said a man shot himself in the hand at the National Matches at Camp Perry in Erie Township Tuesday morning.

The man was cleaning a handgun when he accidentally discharged the weapon, Levorchick said.

The man sustained injuries to his hand and nothing else and the injuries are not life-threatening, he said.

Someone called for an ambulance but the man did not want to wait so he tried driving himself.

But he passed the ambulance on his route to the hospital and was transported by Mid County EMS, Levorchick said.

No other details were available Wednesday, and a report on the incident will be made available Thursday.

The National Matches began this past Monday and will run through Aug. 10.
