At around 9 p.m., Monday South Padre Island police officers were waved down by several subjects in the parking lot of condominiums at 5400 Gulf Blvd.
The responding officer found a male subject in the passenger side of a 2004 Ford truck with a gunshot wound to the head. Authorities located a .357-caliber revolver handgun at the scene. EMS responded to transport the victim to the landing zone for air evacuation in Laguna Vista but by the time they reached the scene, the subject had already died.
“(The) initial investigation has revealed the subject died of a self-inflicted gunshot but we are awaiting autopsy results to conclude the investigation,” said public information officer Naida Robles.
