Homicide detectives are investigating an apparent suicide after finding a body and a gun on The Old Road near Calgrove Boulevard and the Church of the Nazarene, in a parking lot.

“We are sending one of our detectives there,” a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s Homicide Bureau said.

Paramedics were called the 23800 block of The Old Road for initial reports of a cardiac arrest, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Fire Department said.

“They found the person next to a garbage can, gun in hand,” the Fire Department spokesperson said.

Officers with the California Highway Patrol were notified by paramedics.

Deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station who also responded to the call were called to The Old Road near Calgrove shortly after 8 a.m.

“We responded to a rescue call,” Lt. Doug Mohroff told The Signal.

When responding deputies found the body, homicide detectives were called as a matter of protocol.
