A release sent out by Ypsilanti Police Department said after locating residents of the home and conducting interviews, it appears the man was holding the gun to his head in a "Russian Roulette fashion" when he pulled the trigger and injured himself. The gun used was a .32 caliber revolver.
As AnnArbor.com reported earlier, the man was rushed to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ypsilanti following the incident where he is alive and in critical condition as of 7:30 p.m., according to police.
Neighbors told AnnArbor.com earlier on Friday they hadn't heard any commotion at the home earlier in the day.
It’s not clear at this point if the shooting will be pursued with a criminal investigation or ruled an accidental shooting.
