There was nothing posted at the HomeGoods, she said, so it was legal for the man to bring a concealed weapon into the store.
INITIAL REPORT (May 28)
A Xenia man in his 60s accidentally discharged his handgun, striking himself in the groin Monday evening inside the Austin Landing HomeGoods store.
The man was a customer who was in the restroom when it happened, Miami Twp. police officer James Swearingen said. No one else was around, and the CCW permit holder was taken with injuries that were not life-threatening to Kettering Medical Center.

“We are investigating this as an accidental discharge and at this time we are not pursuing any criminal charges,” Swearingen said.
The store did not close following the incident, but the restroom area was closed off, Swearingen said.
The man was assisted by people at the store before police and medics arrived.
The store is located at 10749 Innovation Drive at Austin Landing.
