Investigators are looking into the suicide of a man near a Lewis and Clark County campground.

The sheriff’s office reports the Anaconda/Deer Lodge County coroner will perform an inquest into the 46-year old’s Saturday death.

Deputies pulled the man over after getting reports that he was suicidal.  Investigators say law enforcement tried to get the man to put down a gun that he had pointed at his head but he took his own life.
