Alan Garcia, the former president of Peru, shot himself before being arrested by police amid bribery allegations, his lawyer said.
Local TV channel America reported Garcia was undergoing emergency surgery and was in critical condition.
It broadcast images of Garcia's son and supporters arriving at the hospital.
He said: 'Right now he's being operated on. "Let's pray to God to give him strength", Reyna said in broadcast comments.
Garcia, 69, served twice as president of Peru - first from 1985 to 1990 and again from 2006 to 2011 - as the leader for the center left Aprista Party.

Odebrecht has admitted that it paid $29million to Peruvian officials during three Presidential tenures, but Mr Garcia maintains his innocence and has slammed the inquiry as a political smear.
