Alpena Sheriff Office officials say a man with a gun attempted suicide Sunday evening near Alpena.
Sheriff Steve Kieliszewski says at about 9:30 p.m., Alpena County Central dispatch received a phone call of a possible domestic in progress at 4026 U.S. 23 South. Arriving Deputies were confronted by a male subject exiting the residence, who was holding a handgun, and told deputies not to come any closer. The subject placed the gun in his mouth and Deputies ordered the subject to drop the gun and he failed to comply.
The subject entered his vehicle that was parked in the driveway, left the scene, and Deputies pursued the subject but were unable to locate him. Deputies returned to the scene to interview the victim and witnesses when the subject returned, exiting the vehicle with the gun in his hand.
Deputies ordered the subject to drop the gun, but the subject placed the gun in his mouth, laid down on the ground where he shot himself in the head.
Deputies secured the gun and immediately started life saving efforts and the subject was transported to the hospital where he remained in critical condition Sunday evening.
The incident remains under investigation.
