Former Peruvian President Alan Garcia, under investigation in a corruption scandal, reportedly shot himself early Tuesday as police arrived at his home.
Peru's ex-president Alan Garcia shot himself as police arrived to arrest him in a bribery probe, according to a law enforcement source quoted by Reuters news agency.
"He is in a delicate condition and the prognosis is reserved", added the health ministry, which said the bullet went straight through Garcia's head.
'At this moment, the patient has been in an operating room at said hospital since 7.10am, ' the ministry said.
Garcia was under investigation in connection with Brazilian construction company Odebrecht, which triggered Latin America's biggest graft scandal when it admitted publicly in 2016 that it won lucrative contracts in the region with bribes.
"Let's pray to God to give him strength", Erasmo Reyna, Garcia's lawyer, told journalists at the hospital, as Garcia's supporters chanted slogans in support.
