Man in critical condition after Wayne County Shooting incident

Authorities say a Wayne County man pulled out a gun and began firing at people inside his home before turning the gun on himself.

Richard Perkins is in critical condition.

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office says a 911 call came in shortly before noon Thursday from Perkins' brother, who reported that his brother was shooting at people. Deputies arrived at the residence on Route 414 in Galen to find Perkins inside, with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot to the head. Nobody else was hurt.

Investigators say Perkins' motive is unclear.
