COWARTS: Houston County Sheriff Department is investigating a gunshot death in the 2300 block of Jordan Avenue in Cowarts. The probable cause of death is a self inflicted gunshot.
Houston County Sheriff Andy Hughes was on the scene and has called for crime scene investigators to respond to the scene. Houston County Coroner Robert Byrd is responding to the scene.
Houston County Sheriff Chief Deputy Donald Valenza is on the scene.
We normally do not cover self inflicted deaths. However with multiple units on the scene we are reporting it.
If anything changes from a self inflicted we update. If no update the status does not change.
Our prayers are with the family.
