Police say Bridgeport teen shot self in arm, lied about it

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - Police say a Bridgeport teenager has been arrested after he accidentally shot himself in the arm and then lied about it. Capt. Kevin Gilleran says detectives responded to a report of a shooting at 1:15 p.m. Sunday and found 19-year-old Kahlis Parker with a gunshot wound to the left arm. Gilleran says Parker shot himself but lied about it to avoid arrest. Police say Parker was taken to St. Vincent's Medical Center for treatment of his injuries, then was arrested once he was released from the hospital. It's not clear if he has an attorney who can comment on the charges.
