    MANCHESTER — Police said Friday that a man who claimed to be the victim of a drive-by shooting had actually shot himself.

    Manchester Police said their investigation determined that Donald Ely-Gardner's wound was self-inflicted and that “his intentions were to injure himself.”

    A friend brought Ely-Gardner, 27, to the Manchester Police Department on New Year's Eve with a chest wound that appeared to be caused by a small-caliber handgun, according to police. Police said Ely-Gardner told them he had been out getting cigarettes when he was shot by a passing driver on Route 7A.

    Police said Ely-Gardner was in stable condition at Albany Medical Center and that they did not expect to release any additional information on the incident.
