Man died of self-inflicted gunshot in hourslong police incident: coroner
The 30-year-old man at the center of a 2½-hour police incident died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to the York County Coroner's Office.
Friends of the man contacted police around 7:30 p.m. Thursday and asked officers to go to his home in the 500 block of Bull Run Road and check on him, saying they believed he was having emotional issues, according to Lower Windsor Township Police.
When they arrived at 7:44 p.m., officers reported hearing a gunshot as they entered the home.
Officers attempted to contact the man, then entered the house, police said. At that point, the officers heard a gunshot from the second floor and summoned other police agencies and the York County Quick Response Team to the scene.
Police located the man about 2½ hours later and discovered he had shot himself in the head, the police said. The coroner's office, which was dispatched to the scene, pronounced the man dead at 11:15 p.m.
The man's name has not been released because the manner of death was suicide.
