LAKE CITY, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a young man killed himself with a shotgun at a north Florida pawn shop.

Lake City police report that the out-of-state 19-year-old went to American Pawn Wednesday morning and asked to see a shotgun in the display case. After the clerk handed him the unloaded gun, the man took a shell from his pocket, loaded the gun and shot himself in the head.

Police say the man died an hour later at a nearby hospital.

Authorities weren’t immediately identifying the man.
