A 74-year old man was hospitalized after he accidentally shot himself this week at a Santa Cruz County Campground. Reports say the Morgan Hill man shot himself once in the abdomen with a .22 caliber revolver Monday at 4:45 p.m. at New Brighton State Beach in Capitola. The man suffered non-life threatening injuries and was released the same day. Officials say he faces potential gun charges since firearms are not allowed in any state parks. The shooting, meanwhile is being investigated by state parks.
