A man was found in a front yard with a fatal gunshot wound to the chest about 9 a.m. Saturday in the 3200 block of East Cedar Bayou Lynchburg Road, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

A sheriff’s office statement Saturday said it is not known if the wound was self-inflicted or if the man was shot. The victim’s name has not yet been released.

Baytown Fire and EMS responded and confirmed the death of the man shortly after 9 a.m. The location is east of Sjolander Road, outside the Baytown city limits, so the death is being investigated by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

The City of Baytown provides fire and EMS services to several neighborhoods outside the city by contract.
