Man found with gunshot wound near Polyclinic

CDNews scanner report tipped us to this incident — a man found in his car bleeding from a gunshot wound at 1145 Broadway near the Polyclinic. Traffic in the area was tied up by the emergency response that began around 3:30p. Though initial reports indicated the shooting may have been self-inflicted, witnesses describe seeing a man run away from the vehicle right after the shot was fired. He’s a black male, 30s-40s, 5’10”, slender build, black heavy jacket, black pants, black backpack, last seen southbound on Broadway.

Update: 4:24p SPD confirms that they believe the shooting was self-inflicted. The info officer used the word ‘suicide’ but I need to to confirm status of the victim.
