An 89-year-old Payson man died Tuesday of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Neighbors at the apartment complex at 211 S. Ponderosa heard a shot from a gun and found Kenneth Pratt lying on the ground in the front yard between two buildings just before 10 a.m., according to Payson Police Sgt. Tom Tieman.
Tieman said a home health nurse performed CPR at the scene. Pratt was taken to Payson Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
Tieman said the elderly man left a note and that he had no close family in the area. He said police have notified relatives living on the East Coast who had not seen the man for years.
