Johnson County Sheriff's Deputies are investigating a shooting this morning.
Shortly after midnight, Deputies were called to an address in the 34000 block of Orchard Drive in De Soto on reports of an accidental shooting. Deputies found an 18-year-old man with a single gunshot wound to his genital area.
The man was reportedly asleep on a couch when the gun that a man on a different level of the home was handling accidentally discharged. A single round is said to have been fired through the floor and then "grazing" the genital area of the sleeping man.
Johnson County Med-Act and Northwest Consolidated Fire District crews reported the man's injuries to be non-life threatening. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment.
Deputies continue to investigate the incident. No other details were immediately available.
