At about 1:50 p.m. Monday, Gary L. Francis, 59, of New Haven, apparently shot and killed himself in his vehicle in the parking lot of the Milan Police Department.
Francis was under investigation for an alleged sex offense involving a 6-year-old child, Milan Police Chief James Rose said. Francis had been asked to come to the station and provide a statement.
Francis parked his car in the parking lot, but did not come into the station.
Rose went out to the car to ask Francis to come in and discovered his body in the front seat of his running car.
An investigation is being conducted by the Milan Police Department and the Erie County Coroner’s Office.
