A Snyder Tank Corp. employee fatally shot himself Thursday morning in a Lake Shore Road parking lot adjacent to the Hoover Road business in the Town of Hamburg, authorities said.
"The man went to work and punched in, and a short time later he walked out between two parked cars and shot himself in the chest with a shotgun," said Capt. Thomas Best, chief of the Hamburg Police Department's Detective Bureau.
The man was a Blasdell resident, police said.
The apparent suicide occurred at about 7 a.m. in a parking lot in the 4000 block of Lake Shore, police said.
