Gunshot victim found dead at Armstrong Woods

Hikers in Armstrong Woods State Park Sunday morning came upon the body of a man who apparently had committed suicide, according to Sonoma County sheriff's reports.

The Sheriff's Office was alerted at about 10:50 a.m., said Sgt. Brad Burke.

The body was found about a half-mile up the eastside trail from the picnic grounds.

Initial reports indicated the man was dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

State park rangers, firefighters and sheriff's deputies were called to the incident.
