ALGOMA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- An incident involving a man fatally shooting himself in the head late Saturday is considered accidental.
Cory Newville, 20, suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound while with friends, Kent County Undersheriff Michelle LaJoye-Young said. An investigation shows that the group was drinking, she added.
It happened around 10:53 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5, at a home on Rector Street NE in Algoma Township.
The group of people Newville was with left him just after the shooting, thinking they could get in trouble, LaJoye-Young said. Another individual discovered Newville and contacted police immediately. Authorities arrived shortly thereafter.
