A 74-year-old Salt Lake man accidentally shot himself in the foot Friday while cleaning a gun, the sheriff's office said.

Francis Torney Jr. was treated at Holy Cross Hospital and then released in satisfactory condition, according to a nursing supervisor. Torney had emptied the clip from the gun, but apparently did not notice that a bullet remained, a report said.As he replaced the clip, the gun discharged and hit him in the left foot, above the ankle.
