An Addison man was hospitalized Thursday after mishandling a handgun and shooting himself while hunting in Lee County.

Alfred S. Grigori, 43, was being treated at KSB Hospital in Dixon for an injury that was not life-threatening, according to a news release from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

The release said Grigori was hunting in the Lost Nation area at about 8:30 a.m. Thursday when he mishandled his handgun, resulting in a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his upper body. No other details were released.

The incident remains under investigation by the Illinois Conservation Police. The Lee County Sheriff's Department assisted with the case.
