A California man shot himself in the chest in his SUV in the parking lot of the St. Anthony police department and was found Tuesday morning.
The man was 70-year-old Robert Hockert who was originally born in Minnesota according to The Star Tribune.
It was reported that he shot himself at 8:40 a.m. Tuesday within yards of police headquarters. He was found by a mother driving to daycare, she refused to give out her full name.
Hockert is undergoing surgery at Hennepin County Medical Center and is expected to survive, said The Pioneer Press.
It is unclear why Hockert returned to Minnesota and why he tried to commit suicide.
