Police: Man Accidentally Shot Himself

A Woodford County man is fighting for his life after what police say he shot himself, but they're calling the shooting an accident.

Police say it happened at an apartment in Versailles.

Ryan Wilson is listed in critical condition at UK hospital.

Wilson's friends tell us he was with several friends at the time of the shooting, but they ran from the apartment after Wilson shot himself.

Police were called after neighbors heard the man moaning in pain.

Versailles police have gone on the record with the Lexington Herald Leader saying Ryan Wilson was likely playing Russian roulette, but 27 NEWSFIRST was given conflicting information. Police would not give us a cause for the shooting.

No charges have been filed.
