PORTLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. — A man was found with a gunshot wound around 11:40 p.m. Saturday night in Ionia Co.

Troopers from the Michigan State Police Lakeview Post were called to a home in Portland Township where several shots were reportedly heard.

When they arrived, they found a man lying on the ground in a driveway with a firearm.

A vehicle was stopped before it could leave the area with bullet holes in it, although it is not yet clear how this is related.

After an investigation, troopers believe the victim shot several rounds into an empty vehicle then fired the final shot at himself.

He was taken to Sparrow Hospital in Lansing and is currently in critical condition.

Michigan State Police are still investigating the shooting, and were assisted by the Ionia County Sheriff's Department, Portland Police Department, and Portland Ambulance.
