A man, whose identity hasn’t been released, shot and killed himself on the 1800 block of Belmont Road NW about 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 21. He was found with a gunshot wound to his head, said Beverly Ann Fields, chief of staff for the medical examiner’s office.

The man was unconscious after the shooting, police said shortly after they arrived on the scene. But authorities at the time declined to elaborate on his condition.
