PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Investigators believe a teenager found with a gunshot wound Monday afternoon shot himself.

Phoenix Police spokesman Sgt. Jonathan Howard said the 15-year-old boy was found shot near Thomas and 75th Ave. just before 3 p.m.

He told police he didn't know who shot him, or why, said Howard. The young man's injuries were not life-threatening.

Investigators looking into the incident say that the boy's injuries are most likely self-inflicted, said Howard.
