Man shoots himself in foot during attack at motel

A man shot himself in the foot as he was defending himself from an attacker at a Mesa motel early Thursday, police said.

Police said a man went to a room at the Tails West Motel, 6205 E. Main St., about 2:30 a.m. looking for another man who he said owed him money.

During an altercation, the man in the room was pushed down onto a bed, where he reached over and grabbed a handgun and fired at the attacker. The first shot hit his foot, and the next two struck the attacker in the upper thigh and hand, police said.

The men were taken to hospitals.

Police plan to release the men’s names sometime Thursday.
