The Lucea police in Hanover have commenced an investigation into the death of a man who allegedly committed suicide by shooting himself with an illegal firearm at his home in Elgin Town, Lucea, last Saturday.

Reports are that about 1:40 a.m., Brown was at home with other family members when relatives heard loud explosions sounding like gunshots coming from the direction of his bedroom.
They rushed to investigate and discovered Brown lying on the floor with a gunshot wound to his upper body.
Further checks led to the discovery of a 9mm pistol along with a magazine containing eight live rounds.
The police were summoned and upon arrival, the relatives handed over the illegal firearm to them.
Just a few days before that incident, Ennis Malcolm, an electrician in the community of Jericho, was found hanging in his mother's house.
It is believed that he killed himself after his girlfriend told him their relationship was over.
