Posted:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- Wilmington police are looking for a man who they say suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound but reported that he had been shot by an unknown person.

Police say 21-year-old Michael Wayne Lovett Jr. reported on Sept. 6 that he had been walking in the area of 8th and North Adams Streets when he heard gunshots, began to run, felt pain in his right thigh and realized he had been shot.

Officers say Lovett was taken to a local hospital. Authorities say he could not provide any information about who might have shot him.

Lovett is wanted for filing a false police report.
