The Ellensburg Daily Record reported that the teenager was sent Thursday to Harborview Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
Earlier in the day, the teen had arrived at school Thursday morning saying he had been shot. The secondary school was locked down and law enforcement officers, a State Patrol aircraft and K9 dogs were deployed to look for the reported shooter.
But Kittitas County Undersheriff Clay Myers said investigators determined the wound was self-inflicted. Myers said the teen apparently has been having emotional issues.
