DALLAS (AP) -- Investigators say a man and three bystanders have been slightly hurt when his gun accidentally fired at a Walmart store in Dallas.

Police say 23-year-old Todd Canady of Waco was booked Tuesday on an evading arrest charge. Police say Canady will also be charged with injury to a child. Two youngsters were slightly hurt by bullet fragments.

Police say Canady was checking out Monday night when he reached for his wallet, the gun fell and went off. Authorities say Canady suffered a minor leg wound, while a woman and two children were struck by debris from the ricocheting bullet.

Police say Canady, who ran from the store but was caught, has a concealed handgun permit.

Online jail records did not list an attorney for Canady, who's held on $1,000 bond.
