Maricopa County Sheriff's Office says a man in Guadalupe was taken to the hospital early Monday morning after he shot himself with a flare gun.

MCSO and fire crews were called out to a home near Calle Guadalupe and Avenida del Yaqui after 4 a.m. where they learned a man and two women were inside a home.

The man reportedly put a flare gun to his head and pulled the trigger. The women ran out of the house and the man was taken to a burn unit.

MCSO says drugs and alcohol may have been involved at the time.
