Independence Township— Investigators said Wednesday a gun range videotape captured a woman's suicide after she apparently texted someone on her cellphone.
A 28-year-old Waterford Township woman, who has not been identified, shot herself once in the head with a nine millimeter handgun she had rented at the Accurate Gun Range in the 6500 block of Dixie Highway, according to a preliminary report from the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.
The woman had gone to the range about noon on Tuesday, rented the gun and fired off three boxes of ammunition on the practice range, deputies said. She was found lying on the floor by an employee and a range surveillance video reviewed by investigators showed she had been using her cellphone, apparently texting someone, when she set the phone down and put the handgun to her head and pulled the trigger.
Circumstances of the death remain under investigation by the sheriff's office.
