A man died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound Wednesday, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

The man was in a vehicle parked near the intersection of Northeast 94th Street and 19th Avenue in Hazel Dell and apparently shot himself shortly after 11 a.m., Sgt. Fred Neiman said. Deputies responded after multiple 911 calls.

The man was transported to an area hospital but did not survive his injuries, Neiman said.

Detectives with the agency’s Major Crimes Unit ruled the incident a suicide, Neiman said.
