By Patrick Sullivan | Nov. 12, 2019

A Traverse City man might face charges after his handgun discharged out of a window when he tossed it on a bed following a threat to take his own life.

Traverse City Police were called to a home on the 500 block of Seventh Street Sunday at 12:05pm.

A 25-year-old Traverse City man had been suicidal but then disarmed himself after talking to family members; his firearm discharged out of a window as he disarmed himself, says Sgt. Matt Richmond. Richmond says the bullet was not found.

The man was taken into protective custody to Munson Medical Center because he had threatened to harm himself. His weapon was seized and a report will be sent to prosecutors, who could charge him with reckless discharge of a firearm.
