EPD: Person found shot in chest appears to be self-inflicted, accidental

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - We are now learning that the person found shot in the chest appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the Evansville Police Department.

Sgt. McQuay with EPD says the gunshot wound appears to be self-inflicted and accidental.

He first told us that AMR was called to the 2300 block of Sunburst Blvd. at the Woodland Park Apartments for a person down, but when AMR got there, they found the person was shot in the chest.

Officers originally told us they were looking for someone in connection to the shooting. Now, they say they’re not looking for anyone since it appears to be self-inflicted.
