A 35-year-old man was found shot in the buttocks and thigh in East Baltimore before dawn Monday — injuries police later said were self-inflicted.

Officers were called at about 3:41 a.m. to the 600 block of North East Avenue in the Ellwood Park/Monument neighborhood, where they found the man with his injuries and called an ambulance to take him to a hospital, police said.

It’s not clear exactly where the shooting happened, “due to the victim being highly intoxicated and uncooperative,” police said.
