A man being treated for a self-inflicted gunshot Monday morning was arrested and faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, an official said.

Fort Worth police did not release the man’s name, but police spokeswoman Sharron Neal said that he was brought to Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth by a woman he was trying to abduct after he accidentally shot himself in the arm.

“The male attempted an aggravated kidnapping on the female who drove him to the hospital after he shot himself with the gun he was using to hold her against her will,” Neal said.

The man’s injury was not life-threatening, Neal said.

Police did not describe the relationship between the man and woman or provide any additional details, such as where the attempted abduction happened.
