ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Police were called out to a home in the 1800 block of Cobblestone Court twice Tuesday night for a domestic involving a man and a woman. But the second time officers arrived is when things took a deadly turn.
Officials say the man involved in the dispute drove off in a truck as officers approached the home. That's when investigators say he pulled a gun and took his own life while his truck was still moving.
It happened around 11:30 Tuesday night in a quiet, duplex neighborhood off Schley Avenue. Arriving officers heard the gunfire which shattered glass from the driver side window. Shards landed on the pavement and atop a police cruiser.
The truck continued moving until it rammed head on into a parked Lexus. Paramedics were called out to the scene but the man was already dead from a self inflicted gunshot wound.
Crime scene investigators were called out but determined the death a suicide.
It isn't clear what lead the man to take his own life or if alcohol was involved.
Right now police haven't released the man's name. A spokesperson with the Albany Police Department said that he was black, 30-years-old and lived in neighborhood.
The body will be sent the GBI Crime Lab in Dekalb County for an autopsy
