Police: Man’s death in Lancaster was suicide

A 21-year-old Lancaster man found dead Thursday night took his own life, according to police.

Officers had been sent to the first block of Wise Avenue around 10:30 p.m. for a man down, a call later upgraded to cardiac arrest by 911 dispatchers, police said.

Arriving officers found the man dead in the street, near parked cars, and he appeared to have suffered a head injury, police said.

Following an autopsy by the Lancaster County Coroner's Office, the death is being investigated as an apparent suicide caused by a
self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, police said.
