An Orlando man allegedly shot himself during a robbery, stole a Mercedes from a strip club and then flagged down a deputy himself, according to the Orange County Sherriff’s Office.

The incident took place at about 2:50 a.m. at 1213 18th Street, Lt. Mike Crabb said in a statement.

Panicked about the wound, he ran across the street to Cleo’s Gentlemen’s Club and found a Mercedes with the door open, which he allegedly jumped in and fled north on the Orange Blossom Trail.

“Feeling the effects of the gunshot, he pulled over on Columbia Street and flagged down a deputy,” Crabb said.

He was also positively identified as the robber, Crabb said.
