Man found shot at Westside Village shopping centre

A man was rushed to hospital with a self-inflicted gunshot wound this morning in Vic West.

The man, thought to be in his mid-50's, was discovered inside a business in Westside Village shopping centre around 9 a.m., said Const. Mike Russell. An employee discovered the man and no one else was in the business at the time, he said.

"There was one firearm seized, it's not suspicious, as (the man) was the only one who had access to that firearm," Russell said.

Police have cordoned off the area, while most businesses in the complex remain open.
