An Irving man who shot himself in the head inside a Derby medical clinic late Wednesday night remained in critical condition Thursday in Erie County Medical Center.
Bruce Zgoda, 42, of Erie Road, was a patient in the Caro Medical Center dating back to 1995, according to Evans police.
Just before 8 p.m. Wednesday, Zgoda was found by a medical center supervisor hiding in a locked room of a massage therapy office smoking cigarettes.
He had a gun to his head with his finger on the trigger.
Zgoda shot himself once with the gun as the supervisor was calling 911.
Police said Zgoda had a note with him thanking the staff of the medical center.
Detectives believe Zgoda did not mean to harm "anybody but himself," adding that the .22-caliber rifle he brandished was loaded only with a single bullet.
Police believe that Zgoda was troubled over family matters and medical problems.
