Rhonney Jacobs reportedly shot himself in the groin during a bizarre incident of road rage in Norfolk, Virginia.
Neighborhood residents say they flagged down Jacobs for speeding in his car near some local kids at about 7:30 p.m. last night.
“My friends were standing right there in the yard and the guy came flying by and they were like ‘slow down, there’s kids’ and the guy did a U-turn and pulled over,” Ashley Summerson told WTKR.com.
“[Jacobs] pulled his gun out trying to shoot one of them but he shot himself."
Witness Zach Watson recalled: “He was holding his groin and there was blood everywhere. I’m just happy none of the kids got hurt. I’d rather get shot than one of these kids.”
According to The Virginian-Pilot, Jacobs, who lives on the street, was taken to a local hospital.
He was later arrested and charged for discharging a firearm and brandishing a firearm.
