A 52-year-old Quincy man was transported by CareFlight helicopter Wednesday afternoon to Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton after he reportedly shot himself.
Dispatchers of the Logan County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call about 1:50 p.m. from a neighbor of the 11168 County Road 70, Quincy, residence.
The victim reportedly had texted a family member, who then contacted a neighbor. The neighbor walked by the residence and reportedly saw the man lying on a porch and called 911.
Quincy Fire and EMS also responded to the scene.
Authorities reported this morning that the man was still alive following the shooting.
