Deputies with the Pickens County Sheriff's Office are conducting a death investigation after a man was found dead in the side yard of a house on Sharla Court in Liberty.

Deputies said they were called with a report of a gunshot victim at the address just before 9:30 p.m. Wednesday.

A handgun was recovered at the scene, deputies said.

"Preliminary indications during the early stages of the investigation are indicative of a self-inflicted injury," Chief Deputy Creed Hashe said in a media release.

Deputies said the incident is still under investigation and that an autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.

The coroner has not yet released the victim's identity.
