Man with no reported connection to Mercyhurst University commits suicide on campus

Staff report, Erie Times-News

A man with no apparent connection to Mercyhurst University committed suicide on campus this morning.

The man, whose name and other information has not been released, reportedly suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was found outside of Old Main, near the Mary Garden, according to Erie police and Mercyhurst officials.

Police and other emergency personnel were called to the campus off East 38th Street at about 7:15 a.m.

The man is not a student or faculty member, police said. College President Tom Gamble said in a statement released to the university community that the individual was "unrelated to Mercyhurst University."

Gamble said he confirmed with police that there is no evidence of any danger to the Mercyhurst community resulting from the incident.

"Our prayers are with the deceased and his family. Counseling and prayer services will be arranged soon. Please remain calm and respectful," Gamble wrote in the statement.
