A man killed himself Monday morning at luxury apartments on Kingsboro Road, Atlanta police said.
APD spokesperson Kim Jones said that the man was found dead in his apartment at 3443 Kingsboro Road with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Jones said that Zone 2 units received a call shortly after 8 a.m. about a man threatening suicide. She said units arrived at the scene and could not make contact with anyone inside the apartment.
SWAT units and crisis negotiators arrived at the location, and a warrant was obtained to enter the apartment. A robot was sent in, Jones said, and afterward the man was discovered with the gunshot wound.
The Fulton County Medical Examiner's office is now investigating the death, she said.
The armed man apparently sent an email to his workplace and said he was going to kill himself, according to the 911 report. He barricaded himself in the Kingboro Road apartment in Buckhead, Jones said.
Several police vans were on the scene, along with SWAT team vehicles.
