A man was found with a gunshot wound to the head Wednesday at Galvin Community Park in Santa Rosa minutes after he reportedly threatened to shoot himself, emergency dispatchers said.

It was not immediately clear if the man would survive his injuries. He was being taken to Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital, dispatchers said.

Someone called 911 shortly after noon today to report a man with a firearm threatening to shoot himself in some bleachers near a baseball diamond in the Bennett Valley park.

Officers and paramedics were responding when a police officer found him injured.

No additional information was immediately available.
