PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in Prescott say an 85-year-old man has been found dead in a car parked at a shopping center.

Prescott police say the death appears to be a suicide.

Officers were called to the scene about 7:30 a.m. Thursday.

They were met by the Prescott man’s daughter who reported finding the body.

She told police that her father had some medical issues and had threatened suicide in the past.

Police investigators say the man had a single gunshot wound and a small caliber handgun has been recovered.

Based on their initial investigation, police say it appears the gunshot wound was self-inflicted.

The name of the man wasn’t immediately released.

Police say security footage shows the man driving a car into the parking lot around 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.
