LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. - Lee County Sheriff's deputies are conducting a death investigation at a home on Clayton Ave. and 10th St.

Early Thursday morning, one person was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital with an apparent self-inflicted gun shot wound. That person died at the hospital.

However, now detectives on the scene say they can't confirm that it was self-inflicted, and are now treating it as a death investigation.

LCSO says the public is not at risk.
