Yikes

I wonder what time this happened:

DOWNTOWN DALLAS

Police: Man kills self
at cancer survivor site

A 47-year-old man fatally shot himself Tuesday afternoon at Cancer Survivor Plaza, near Pearl and Bryan streets, police said.

The man was sitting in the park with business cards laid out in front of him when a city parks employee cleaning the area approached him, said Senior Cpl. Kevin Janse, a police spokesman. The man told the city worker not to touch the business cards, and the employee indicated he had to clean them up.

The man pulled up his shirt, exposing a handgun, and the city worker ran and warned another bystander, police said. The man then shot himself in the head and was pronounced dead at the scene.

His name was being withheld because his family had not been notified late Tuesday.
