A 38-year-old identified as Cedrick Jelks was reportedly taken to hospital in Jacksonville, Florida after being shot on Friday morning.
Jelks was however, rushed to Memorial Hospital by Shanekia Roberts who lived in nearby Freedom Crossing Trail.
She told police that he entered her home in a distressed state and immediately went into the bathroom.
After following him, the 25-year-old saw the extent of his injuries, which had resulted in a wound to his penis. Jelks then confessed to Roberts that he was alone in the vehicle when the gun went off underneath him.
Although his current condition is reportedly unknown, Jelks is said to have undergone surgery.
Meanwhile, investigators learnt that Jelks had been convicted in 2004 for cocaine possession and will likely face charges for allegedly possessing a firearm.
