PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — A 77-year-old man apparently committed suicide in the parking lot of a Walmart Supercenter in Port St. Lucie.
Police say the man sat down between two parked cars Friday afternoon and shot himself in the head with a Taurus .38-caliber handgun.
The St. Lucie County Fire District reports that the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities found the gun's box in a nearby trash can, but it's not clear when, where or how he acquired it.
