A National Rifle Association employee accidentally shot himself Thursday when his pistol discharged during a firearms training, police told NBC News 4 on Friday.

The unnamed 46-year-old man sustained the injury while putting his gun in his holster at the NRA’s National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia, according to NBC News 4. He suffered a minor injury to his “lower body.”

No charges are expected in the incident, according to the report. The NRA did not immediately respond to TPM’s request for comment and there was no statement available on the organization’s website.
