A man was shot in the head in El Sereno Thursday afternoon, and witnesses told investigators the injury was self-inflicted, police said.

The shooting was reported about 4:40 p.m. in the 2800 block of Hollister Avenue, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

The unidentified victim was in “extremely critical condition” when taken to County-USC Medical Center, according to Sgt. John Porras of the LAPD’s Hollenbeck Station, who said witnesses reported the gunshot wound was self- inflicted.

Hollenbeck Division Capt. Martin Baeza reported on Twitter that the shooting was being investigated as a possible suicide, but Porras was unable to confirm whether the man had died.
