LANSING, Iowa (AP) — Northeast Iowa authorities are investigating a shooting where a 27-year-old man injured himself.

The Allamakee County Sheriff's office says the incident happened about 4:30 a.m. Sunday at a home near Lansing.

Authorities say Logan Bunn fired a gun at a tree outside the home, but the bullet bounced back and hit him.

Police were notified after Bunn showed up at a La Crosse hospital. Bunn is expected to survive.

The sheriff's office says no foul play is suspected.

    I can tell you this, after years of hunting squirrel and coon, I have had a number of bullets ricochet out of trees. Most flare right or left, but just last year when shooting at a coon, one came straight back and hit the ground beside me.

    Guns don't kill people, people don't kill people TREES are the cause.
