A  man last weekend apparently pulled his black Jeep into the wooded area along Carissa Drive in the Lochwood area and then killed himself. I first heard about the incident from my dad, a Lochwood resident who was walking in the neighborhood Saturday morning about the time police arrived on the scene. Fellow bystanders told him that the man had shot himself. Other neighbors say the man was not from the neighborhood, as far as they know, and that it’s a mystery as to why he chose this particular spot in which to end his life. According to the report, police have ruled it a suicide.
