Police believe a man has died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound Monday afternoon in a parking lot at a sports complex on Riverview Drive just off Popp’s Ferry Road, Lt. Christopher De Back said.

The Sun Herald reports on suicides only if they occur in public. Police responded in force to the scene, with crime-scene investigators collecting evidence, De Back said. Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove also responded.

Late Monday afternoon, De Back said investigators had no reason to suspect foul play in the death, but the investigation was continuing.
