Napoleon police responded Monday to an incident at a residence initially believed to be a possible crime scene, but later determined to be a medical issue.
An officer responded to a 9-1-1 hangup call early Monday morning at a residence on Riverview Avenue. According to Police Chief Dave Mack, the officer found someone, later identified as the resident, in a doorway.
“There was significant trauma to the victim,” Mack said. “He thought it could be a gunshot wound and we handled it as such, for the safety of the officers, until we determined otherwise.”
Mack said the trauma was the result of a complication from a previous medical situation. The victim was transported to Henry County Hospital. No other information was available on the victim.
“We don’t suspect any foul play,” Mack said.
The Henry County Dog Warden was called in to assist with a couple of dogs that were contained.
