LAS VEGAS (AP) — A man shot and killed himself Saturday morning inside a Walmart store in Las Vegas.

Police say the man walked around the store near Nellis Air Force Base for a few minutes and took his life with his own gun in the sporting goods section about 6:15 a.m.

Police told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the man never threatened anyone and it’s unclear why he chose to take his life at a Walmart Supercenter.

An employee who answered the phone Saturday said the store was temporarily closed after the shooting as police investigated.
