Dearborn police on Monday said a man found inside a vehicle Sunday afternoon died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police responded to the scene at about 3 p.m. Sunday near Michigan Avenue and Schlaff on a report of a man slumped over the steering wheel, according to a news release.

The 32-year-old man, whose name was not released by police, had a gunshot wound to the head. He later died at an area hospital.
