CHANDLER, Ind. (WFIE) - Police say the search for a wanted man in Chandler has come to an end.

Our 14 News crew was on scene Wednesday night as police had a house surrounded for several hours.

They say that happened after a fight broke out in the area of Cherokee Street and Navajo Trace.

Police say that fight then led to a gun being fired.

Law enforcement officials believed the man was inside the home, but it was also believed that he might have ran out into nearby woods.

We’re told the man they couldn’t find last night was found this afternoon around 4 on Center Road just outside of Chandler.

Police say he was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, which officers believe may have been a suicide attempt.

According to Chandler PD, the man crawled out onto the road and a woman pulled over to help.

Officials say he is in the hospital and will not be releasing names at this time.

Charges have been sent to the prosecutor for review for criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon. There’s a possibility for additional charges.
