Yesterday, I stopped by our local Lowes to get some stuff for the den/kitchen remodel job I am doing. As I pulled into the parking lot, I noticed cops - lots of cops. Also that yellow crime scene tape, blocking off one of the parking rows.

I parked in the next row. Got out, walked by the area on my way to the store entrance. I looked over and could see a guy lying on the pavement by a car. He was very obviously dead. None of the cops were doing anything except standing around talking/making notes - with the guy on the pavement, not moving. I then noticed the white van - coroner's van. Definitely a dead guy.

Inside, I got my stuff and, at the checkout, I asked what was up. Apparently, the guy shot himself - suicide. Left a note.

Pretty bleak....
