Redding Police are investigating the untimely death of a resident. Redding Police officers responded to a report of shots being fired in a private home on Simpaug Turnpike around 6:45 Friday night.
Responding officers were told that a 60-year old man was inside the home, armed with a gun.
Officers couldn’t make contact with the man so they gained entry to find that he died of what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
