A man is facing charges after police say he shot himself in the leg with his own gun while in a crowded cinema.

Theo Theomopoulos of Shelton turned himself in to police Thursday for the shooting at the Bow Tie Royale theater in Norwalk, Connecticut which occurred in early September.

He is charged with unlawful discharge of a firearm, second-degree reckless endangerment and breach of peace, the Associated Press reports.

He has a licence for the firearm which was a 9mm.

He accidentally pulled the trigger in the theatre.
