An adult Columbia man received a single gunshot wound to the side of the leg Sunday night. Columbia Police officers found the victim in the 2700 block of Quail Drive after being dispatched at 5:54 p.m.
Police declined to give the victim’s name. Sgt. Brian Richenberger said evidence at the scene showed signs that the wound may have been accidentally self-inflicted.
“We only have indication that one shot was fired. One casing was located,” he said. “The angle and conflicting statements by the victim are consistent with a self-inflicted gunshot.”
