A York City man who arrived at York Hospital with a gunshot wound to his left thigh about 2:40 a.m. Sunday was uncooperative with an officer trying to get information from him, police said.
Tristan Hughes, 26, of the 400 block of East Princess Street, wouldn't say where the shooting happened or who was with him at the time, according to York City Police.
"That's for you to figure out -- I ain't telling you anything," Hughes allegedly told officers. He maintained he was minding his own business when an unknown person shot him, police said.
The more an officer tried to convince Hughes to talk, the more agitated he became, police said.
But police said it doesn't appear the shooting is a whodunit. Based on the downward trajectory of his wound and other factors, it's believed Hughes accidentally shot himself, according to police.
About 2:30 a.m. Sunday, other city officers were dispatched to the corner of South Duke and East Maple streets for reported gunfire, but found no victim. Police said they believe that's where Hughes apparently shot himself.
His hospital condition could not be obtained.
