At approximately 1:41 PM pm today, Woodland Police officers responded to the Woodland Costco (2299 Bronze Star Dr) parking lot in reference to a report of an individual in a car with a gun. Upon arrival, officers cordoned off the area and had surrounding businesses secure their doors. Because it was believed that the individual was in possession of a weapon and was moving around in the car, officers utilized the SWAT armored vehicle to make a safe approach. It was discovered that the individual, the sole occupant of the vehicle, had suffered a single gunshot wound to the head, believed to be self-inflicted. The individual, was still alive at the time of discovery, was treated immediately by staging fire personnel and subsequently transported to the UC Davis Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries.

This investigation is now being primarily conducted through the Sacramento Coroner, and any notifications of this individual’s identity will be made by their office.
