GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – A Byron Township man is dead after apparently committing suicide at an indoor shooting range.

The unidentified man suffered the self-inflicted wound on Monday at the Barracks 616 range on Foremost Drive SE.

Police say that suicides are not that uncommon at gun ranges as people who cannot pass background checks to purchase firearms will go to the ranges to commit suicide.
