SPARTA, Wis. (AP) -- A shooting in Sparta has left one man dead and another seriously wounded.

Officers were called late Saturday about a possible shooting. When police arrived they found a 23-year-old man lying by a vehicle in the driveway with an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
