(64804) — Saturday morning police responded to the Mercy Convenient Care parking lot to a report of a male slumped over the wheel of a car and bleeding, also a gun was visible through the closed window. Police arrived quickly. It was a massive scene. The vehicle was locked, windows up. They had to break the glass and the male was deceased. It was determined to be suicide. Not something we normally put on the news.
But it happened – on Rangeline – and it looked HUGE. Because it was in the middle of a busy morning and a very public place.
Our thoughts are with the family of the man.
The Ozark Center has a 24-hour crisis line if you or someone you know are thinking about hurting themselves or someone else. Suicide is not something we report on the news since it is normally a private family matter. The crisis line is answered locally. (source: Ozark Center, a div of Freeman Health Systems)
