Emergency workers were unable to save a man found with two apparent gunshot wounds in his chest on Tuesday in the rear parking lot of a mental health center in Oak Ridge.
The Oak Ridge Police Department has not released the man’s name or age, and a report said the shooting remains under investigation.
The ORPD report said officers responded to a call of an attempted suicide in the rear parking lot of Ridgeview at about 4:11 p.m. Tuesday. The man was found in a vehicle with the gunshot wounds, the report said.
Rescuers started lifesaving efforts and the man was taken next door to Methodist Medical Center, but he did not survive, ORPD Officer John B. Thomas said in the report.
The report said officers found Smith and Wesson firearms/ammunition, two spent .38 Special shell casings, and four .38 special handgun rounds, and they recovered two slugs from the vehicle.
