Man shoots himself at ER
Victim in critical condition
MOULTRIE-A 49-year-old man shot himself at Colquitt Regional Medical Center after his son took him to the emergency room Wednesday afternoon.
Moultrie Police Sgt. Roger Lindsay said Charles "Charlie" Hamilton, 49, of 2312 Sylvester Drive, was brought to the emergency room by his son, complaining of several medical problems. Hamilton went inside the bathroom at the ER's waiting room, and his son stated he heard a single gunshot. Lindsay was called to the ER at 3:21 p.m.
When the son went into the bathroom, Lindsay said he found Hamilton with a single, self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head area. Moultrie police officers found a 9 mm pistol inside the bathroom, and the son identified the gun as Hamilton's.
The son told officers he did not know Hamilton had brought the gun with him to the ER, Lindsay said.
A hospital spokesman said Hamilton was listed in critical condition as of late Wednesday afternoon.
Lindsay said Hamilton's son believes the medical problems his father complained of were the reason he shot himself. He could not elaborate on what medical conditions Hamilton suffered from.
