GRAND FORKS -- A Grand Forks man who accidentally shot himself in the leg has been released from the hospital, an Altru nursing supervisor said Monday.


Ron Delp, 31, was sitting on his couch, taking apart his .40-caliber handgun shortly after midnight Saturday, said Grand Forks Police Lt. Grant Schiller.

"He was trying to tear it down to, I assume, clean it," Schiller said. "And all of a sudden it went off."
