At 1:40 a.m. this (Thursday) morning, police disarmed a suicidal man who was shooting himself in the chest with a nail gun after pointing it at a Nashville officer.

 

The officer responded to a home on Francis Street to find a man in the garage pointing a nail gun at him. The officer ordered the man to drop the nail gun but he rushed the officer, keeping the nail gun pointed at him.

 

The man had run back into the garage when Barry County Sheriff’s deputies arrived to assist. They entered the garage, where the man was still holding the nail gun. Ordered to drop it, he instead turned it on himself, firing and striking himself several times in the chest.

 

Deputies deployed less than lethal rounds at the man to prevent him from further harming himself. He was transported by AeroMed to a Grand Rapids hospital were he was listed in stable condition.

Names are being withheld during the ongoing investigation.

Nashville police were assisted by Barry County Sheriff’s deputies, Nashville EMS and Nashville Fire Department.
