A San Diego police officer was hospitalized after what KNSD described as a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the leg.

He is expected to make a full recovery.

Marathon runners were rerouted as police investigated the reported shooting, although KNSD reported that the run was allowed to continue as normal after authorities determined there was no longer any threat Sunday afternoon.
