A man showed up at a Madison hospital Tuesday morning with a gunshot wound to his head, but police believe it was an isolated incident and the public is not in danger.

The 42-year-old victim went to the hospital at about 6 a.m. from his home in the 2000 block of McKenna Boulevard, Madison police said.

"He never called police but officers were dispatched to the  hospital after he arrived with a graze wound to the head, which required stitches," said police spokesman Joel DeSpain.

The victim told police he was shot inside his home at about 3:40 a.m.
