A 47-year-old Lincoln man shot and killed himself this week in Irvingdale Park.

A woman reported seeing a man leaning over the pedestrian bridge on the north side of the park at 20th and Van Dorn streets at about 6:30 a.m. Monday.

Officers found the man and determined he committed suicide with a shotgun.

School officials at Irving Middle School, which is near the park, sent out an email to parents informing them the man had killed himself and that counselors were available to meet with students.
