Police investigating the death of a man found in a vehicle at a local business now believe that he accidentally shot himself in the leg in Marysville and bled to death before he could call for help.
The Daily Herald of Everett reports the 57-year-old man worked as a security guard at a movie theater. When he failed to return home Saturday his wife found him dead in his car in the parking lot.
Police Cmdr. Robb Lamoureux (LAM’-or-oh) says the bullet hit a femoral artery, and man apparently passed out. A cell phone dialed to 911 was found between his legs.
Police have not yet identified the man.
