A young man is dead today from what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s officials said.

Shortly after 1:30 p.m., deputies were called to a house on De Wolfe Road in Newhall on reports of a man who apparently shot himself with a shotgun, said Lt. Tom Bryski.

More than half a dozen sheriff’s cruisers and at least one Los Angeles County Fire Department truck converged on a one-story house on the east side of the De Wolfe Road cul-de-sac.

A deputy said the body of a man was found outdoors between the side of the house and a fence.

Investigators with the Homicide Bureau of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the Los Angeles County Coroner’s office were dispatched to the house, Bryski said around 2 p.m.

“The (deceased) is a male in his 20s,” he added. His identity was not released.
