Pasco deputies say man accidentally shot himself with gun he stole

HOLIDAY — A man accused of stealing a gun was arrested after accidentally shooting himself in the hand.

According to the Pasco Sheriff's Office, Jason M. Koulias, 26, broke down the front door to a house at 5924 Pappillion Lane in Holiday in March and stole a .40-caliber Glock handgun, a computer and a laser sight for the gun. Koulias somehow shot himself with the gun and was taken to Community Hospital, the report said.

As hospitals have to report gunshot wounds to authorities, Koulias was questioned at the hospital on Thursday and linked to the March break-in.

He was arrested on a charge of armed burglary and released on $50,000 bail.
