Deputies continue to investigate shooting

Aug 22, 2013 - From staff reports

The early morning death of a 36-year-old Riverton man at the Cozy Mobile Home Park may have been due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound, officials said Thursday.

The person who reported the incident said the man had "shot himself," according to a press release. When deputies arrived on scene, they found two adults in a residence with the deceased man.

"At this time we are investigating the case as an apparent suicide," Undersheriff Ryan Lee said. "The investigation into the incident is ongoing and will take several days to complete."

An autopsy is scheduled for 1 p.m. Thursday.

Lee said results of the autopsy should help officials conclude their investigation into the death.
