OTTAWA — A Carleton Place man is likely to face charges once he recovers from shooting himself in the head with a nail gun — twice.

It happened after 7 p.m. Monday at a woman’s home on Thomas Argue Rd. in the Ottawa community of Carp.

Sources tell the Sun the man was breaching conditions by going to the home of his ex-wife. It’s not known what was said between the two, but the man ended up shooting himself in the head twice with a nail gun.

The woman called 911 and paramedics treated the man once police had secured the home.

There weren’t any children at the residence during the bizarre domestic incident.

The man, who is 51 years-old, is recovering in hospital and charges are pending.
