On September 1, 2019, at approximately 11:05AM, Lake County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to 5 Star Firearms, 41666 North Sheridan Road, Unincorporated Zion, for a report of a man shot.
Preliminary investigation shows an individual, believed to be a 49-year-old man of Riverdale, Georgia, entered the facility, rented a firearm, and proceeded to the on-site range. Video surveillance shows the man then shot himself, in what appears to be an intentional act. His injuries were life-threatening, and he was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The Lake County Coroner’s Office responded, and an autopsy has been scheduled for Tuesday.
The investigation remains ongoing by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office and Lake County Coroner’s Office.
