Man dies at Huntington Beach shooting range

A man died of a gunshot wound Aug. 2 at an indoor shooting range in Huntington Beach, in what police are calling an apparent suicide.

The Huntington Beach Police Department responded to the shooting at 12:16 p.m. at the Firing-Line Indoor Shooting Range, 17921 Jamestown Lane, said Lt. Chad Nichols.

The shooting occurred while the gun range was crowded, said Lt. Mitch O’Brien. He would not say whether the victim used his own gun or a gun from the range.

A man who answered the phone at the range declined to comment.

The indoor firing range, which also has locations in Burbank and Northridge, offers classes on how to properly use firearms, according to its website.

Police are still investigating the incident.
