"Suspicious" Tamarac Death May Be Connected to Gun Range Suicide: BSO

The Broward Sheriff’s Office says its homicide detectives are investigating a suspicious death at a Tamarac home that may be related to a suicide Saturday morning at a Lauderdale Lakes gun range.

Earlier Saturday, at about 10:40 a.m., deputies went to the Arizona Shooting Range & Emporium at 4325 N. State Road 7 in Lauderdale Lakes, where a man “rented a gun and shot himself,” the BSO said.

The man was treated by Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue and taken in critical condition to Broward General Medical Center, where he died, the BSO said.

The shooting range told NBCMiami.com over the phone that its representative who might be able to address the suicide incident would not be available until Sunday.

Another suicide happened at the Arizona Shooting Range in October 2010, when a 47-year-old Weston man shot himself there, leaving behind a multi-page, typed suicide note in his silver car in the parking lot, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported.
