Former Major League Baseball star, Jose Canseco was accidently shot in his Las Vegas home earlier today. According to FOX 5, the former outfielder shot himself when the semi-automatic handgun he was cleaning discharged.
The bullet hit Canseco’s middle finger on his left hand. Following the incident, his girlfriend, Leila Knight called 911 for assistance and he was taken to the University Medical Center. Surgeons are attempting to save his nearly severed finger. However, if they are unsuccessful, they will have to amputate it.
