Man found dead in apparent suicide

PASADENA — A man was found dead from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound outside a Pasadena business Thursday, police said.
The name of the man was not released pending notification of family members, Los Angeles County Department of Coroner Assistant Chief of Operations Ed Winter said. He was believed to be in his 70s.
A person found the body just after 8 a.m. after arriving at a house that had been converted to a business in the 200 block of South Orange Grove Avenue, Pasadena Police Commander Darryl Qualls said.
The person who found the body knew the dead person, though the relationship between them was not clear, the commander said.
The body was found with a gun in hand, he said.
Though no foul play was suspected and the shooting appeared to be a suicide, the commander said, coroner’s officials will conduct an examination on the body.
