A man is being treated for a gunshot wound after attempting suicide in a field next to Victor School Wednesday afternoon, according to the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office.
The incident occurred after students had been released from school, but deputies interviewed a teenage boy who was a witness, Sgt Nellie Stone said.
Before the attempted suicide, the victim’s family, concerned that the man could try to kill himself, contacted the Sheriff’s department, Stone said.
The victim, whose name has not been released, shot himself at least once in the upper body, Stone said.
