A Knights Landing man has been convicted of drugs and weapons charges after shooting himself while using methamphetamine.

A call came in on January 29th from a woman who said her boyfriend had been shot.  An investigation revealed that 24-year-old Alejandro Yanez was high when he decided to clean his rifle.

The .22 caliber weapon discharged and hit Yanez in the forearm. This is not the first time this has happened.  A similar incident happened to Yanez less than year ago.  That time he shot himself in the knee.
