Police launched an investigation after a man went to shooting range, where he committed suicide in front of his brother, according to police in New Jersey.

Woodland Park police said that the 25-year-old man and his brother went to the Gun for Hire shooting range located on McBride Avenue, where he shot himself.

The man was taken to the St. Joseph’s Regional Medical Center in Paterson, where he died of a single gunshot wound.

The victim’s brother said that he was very surprised about the suicide as there was never any indication that he was in distress.

Police said that this was the second suicide on the Gun for Hire, in the past six weeks. Six weeks ago, a 30-year-old man of Garfield, put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger.

Gun for Hire claims to be the world’s only family destination gun range. They offer easy access for people to shoot guns without a permit.
