A 25-year-old man survived a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head Friday night, said Chief Deputy John Oglesby of the DeWitt County Sheriff's Office.
The emergency call was received about 10:15 p.m., and Yorktown emergency services also responded to the scene. The man shot himself in a trailer park along State Highway 72 just outside Yorktown. He was airlifted to a hospital in San Antonio, and his condition was not available Saturday evening.
