A 22-year-old Topeka man was injured in an accidental shooting at Perry Lake Friday morning.
A sheriff's office deputy was called to St. Francis Health Center in Topeka about 6 a.m., said Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Herrig, where Brace A. Turbot was being treated for a non-life threatening gunshot wound in his leg.
Turbot had been camping with friends in Perry State Park, on the west side of the lake, and had been drinking, according to a news release from Herrig's office. While attempting to take apart his handgun, he shot himself in the leg. The sheriff's office continued to investigate the incident Friday.
