An 83-year-old man shot himself to death inside their residence in Sta. Maria, this city last Sunday morning.

Police identified the suicide as Expedito de Jesus Sr. widow, of Sta. Maria.

De Jesus was discovered with bullet wounds in the left part of the chest and left arm at the second level of their house. He was rushed to the hospital, but was declared dead on arrival.

Recovered from the scene was a .22 cal. revolver with five spent shells and a live round in the cylinder.

Police said that De Jesus was suffering from severe depression due to old age that reportedly drove him to commit suicide.

Policemen on the other hand were still investigating the incident to erase any doubt of possible foul play. – Dan Toribio Jr.
