Waco police believe a man may have shot himself in the leg Wednesday morning.

"However, the circumstances surrounding the incident are very questionable," Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton wrote in a press release.

Officers responded to the 5500 block of Tennyson Drive shortly before 11 a.m. for the shooting, and the man was taken to Baylor Scott & White Hillcrest Medical Center, Swanton said.

Police are continuing to investigate, but there is no danger to the public from the incident, he said. No other details were available.
