SPOKANE, Wash. -

A 22-year-old man was transported to the hospital early Thursday morning after sustaining a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

He was at a party at a residence in the 200 block of South Sullivan.

Police and medics responding found the male with a gunshot wound to the head. They say there were about nine witnesses who stayed on scene and about a dozen fled after the event.

Police say it appears the self-inflicted wound was accidental and there was no confrontation.

Investigators are still on scene trying to figure out exactly what happened.
