KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -

Kansas City police are investigating the death of a man who suffered a gunshot wound in his hospital bed.

Police say a nurse found the 59-year-old patient wounded Monday at the Truman Medical Center.

The death has been assigned to the police department's homicide unit.

Police say the nurse who checked on the patient found him bleeding from the nose. Hospital staff did not perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation because the patient had a "do not resuscitate" order.

A handgun was found under the man's arm.
