Police say they believe the gunshot wound to a victim in an early morning shooting was actually self-inflicted.

Someone heard a shot ring out just before 5 a.m. Monday and called police. Police found a man lying on the sidewalk and transported him to the hospital.

After gathering evidence, police now say they do not believe a crime was committed, but that the gunshot wound was self-inflicted.

The incident happened on the 4300 block of Morning Sun in Colorado Springs, right behind a shopping center at the corner of Academy and Austin Bluffs.
