He stated that the event started out as pleasantries from fans who were complimenting him, including the policeman, and in an attempt to show appreciation decided to shoot in the air, even though he (Charles) did not buy the idea, the gun fell from his hands as he was drunk and the gun started shooting rapidly, which hit him severally before it stopped. Charles had his intestines in his hands, while he was rushed to the hospital about an hour after.
