A West Terre Haute man who formerly reported to police that he was robbed and shot is now facing some trouble.

WTWO News reported Monday that Terre Haute police responded to a shooting that occurred Sunday morning.

Cory Pearce, 19, of West Terre Haute, told police that he was attacked while walking in the area of 11th and 8th Avenue and shot in the hand.

Police have learned since, however, that this story was fabricated and that Pearce shot himself.

Pearce has been arrested and charged with false reporting and obstruction of justice.
