Gun death at Newhall firing range is an apparent suicide, police say

One person died of a self-inflicted gunshot Friday night at a Newhall firing range, said Lt. James Duran of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. 

Few details were available about the shooting, which was reported at 8:47 p.m. at the Oaktree Gun Club on Coltrane Avenue, Duran said.

"All I can tell you is it was a male and it appears to be a suicide," he said.

No one else was injured, Duran said.

The victim died at the scene. His name was not released.
