Man allegedly shoots self, blames assailant

An Old South End man reportedly shot himself in the leg and tried to mislead investigators by saying he had been shot by an unseen assailant, police said.

Brandon Klein of the 500 block of Western Avenue told police he was walking to a house on Dunwood Court shortly after midnight last night when he was shot in the leg.

Mr. Klein was taken by ambulance to Medical College of Ohio Hospitals, where he was admitted, according to police.

According to police, the victim “managed to shoot himself in the leg, then fabricated his tale in order to thwart the investigation.” No charges have been filed as of yesterday and the weapon has yet to be recovered, police said.
