   According to Capt. George Douglas with the Grenada Police Department, a man he identified as Steven Kendall, 29, accidentally discharged a .40 caliber handgun and injured himself around 10 a.m.
   “According to an eyewitness, a man heard one shot and went over to the vehicle to check on Kendall,” said Douglas.
   The witness called 911, and an ambulance arrived and transported Kendall to the University of Mississippi Medical Center-Grenada.
