A 31-year-old man died Monday night after he was shot in the chest.

Victoria police were called by family members to a home in the 100 block of Guinevere Street about 6:45 p.m., Lt. Michael Beyer said.

The man was dead by the time EMS arrived, he added.

Justice of the Peace Precinct 2 Stuart Posey performed an inquest.

The man's name was not released late Monday night because police were not sure if his family had been notified.

It was unclear whether the man shot himself by accident.

"Right now, it is still under investigation, but there is no obvious signs of foul play," Beyer said.
