(ENGLISH) - Indiana State Police were called to a Crawford County deputy's home in English early Friday morning.

ISP Detective Phil Stowers says that Crawford County Deputy Jesse Belcher had finished his shift Thursday night at 10 p.m. and had returned home.

Stowers says sometime between 1:30 and 2a.m. this morning, Belcher called another Crawford County deputy and after talking for a few minutes he hung up.

The other deputy became concerned for Belcher's welfare and attempted to call him back.

After Belcher failed to answer his phone, two deputies responded to Belcher's home at 2768 Benham Mill Road near English.

When deputies arrived they found 26-year-old Belcher had shot himself in the head with a handgun.

He was taken to the University of Louisville Hospital where he is currently being treated for his injury.
