PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say an Escambia County employee fatally shot himself in a county administrative building.

The Pensacola News Journal (https://goo.gl/EEB2vE ) reports that the administrative complex in downtown Pensacola was evacuated after reports of a gunshot Friday afternoon.

A police news release says officers responded and found the man’s body on the second floor.

Officials say visitors are searched for weapons upon entering the county building, but employees enter through the garage and are not searched.

Authorities didn’t identify the man or his position with the county.
