Man Charged With False Police Report After Shooting Self-Inflicted Wound
On July 24, 2022, Manchester Police received a call from a man who reported being shot by an unknown male.
The caller told police he was in a parking lot near Elm and Lowell Streets when he got into a fight with another man. He reported that the other man pulled out a gun and shot him during the incident.
During the investigation, police determined that the man, identified as 35-year-old Tyson Morgan of Manchester, lied multiple times to police, and the gunshot was actually self-inflicted. Morgan was subsequently arrested and charged with False Police Report to Law Enforcement and Falsifying Physical Evidence.
Manchester Police always diligently investigate all gun violence reports and explore all possible outcomes. This investigation tied up a large number of police resources and valuable time, only to be unfounded.
