ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  We have new details in the suicide of a guard at Autry State Prison.

The GBI Monday identified the guard is Michael Hinchy. Investigators say he shot himself while he was on duty around one o'clock Sunday morning.

Hinchy was found outside on the prison grounds.

The Department of Corrections told us Hinchy committed suicide, but the GBI will not make that ruling until they get results of the autopsy which was performed Monday.
