CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A Robstown man is recovering in a local hospital after telling police he accidentally shot himself in the arm.
Robstown Police Department officers said in a news release that they responded to a call for a child shot in the 800 block of W. Ave. D at about 12:02 p.m. Thursday.
When officers arrived on-scene, they said an 18-year-old man was found with a gunshot wound in his left arm.

Police said the investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
