Body Found in Front of Alabama Capitol Considered Suicide

On Friday, April 23, around 2:30 am, Montgomery police located a body in the 600 block of Dexter Avenue. This is located in front of the State Capitol.

Police and Fire Medics located an adult male suffering from a self-inflicted life-threatening gunshot wound. He later died at the scene.

Police have launched an investigation into the man’s death.


Alabama News Network normally doesn’t report on suicides; however, since the action occurred in a public area and on Capitol grounds, we felt it was necessary to let the public know about this morning’s incident.
