Brian J. Parry reportedly used a pistol provided to participants to end his life in front of about a dozen people. A coroner’s report issued earlier in the week ruled his death a suicide, the Intelligencer noted.
The shooting took place at the West Coast Armory, which bills itself the state’s “premier indoor shooting range” at 31,000 square feet, featuring state-of-the-art shooting stalls and “NRA certified Range Safety Instructors” present at all times.
“We have a welcoming environment for both the serious, well trained shooter, as well as the novice firearm enthusiast that wants to learn how to safely handle a handgun,” the company’s website says.
