SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An 18-year-old man admitted to police Friday that he shot himself while drunk, then tried to cover it up by claiming he had been wounded in a drive-by shooting in Oak Park, police said.
The man said in his fictional account that he had been shot by someone inside a passing car in the 3000 block of 54th Street just before midnight, said Officer David Stafford, a San Diego Police Department watch commander.
He was taken to a local trauma unit to be treated for a small caliber wound to the lower portion of one of his legs, he said.
During the subsequent investigation, the man - uncooperative and still drunk - admitted he had shot himself, Stafford said. It was not immediately clear if he would face charges.
