A Canal Fulton police release says officers responded around 6 p.m. Saturday to an apartment after a complaint about 39-year-old Gabriel Mayberry making threatening statements to harm himself and others.

Police say officers began talking to Mayberry through a window and he began making suicidal threats. Police say they were fired upon through a door with a single gunshot and a “projectile,” from the gunshot struck a sergeant in the foot.

Authorities entered the apartment shortly before 9 p.m. and found Mayberry with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He died at the scene.

The sergeant was expected to fully recover.

Canal Fulton is roughly 50 miles south of Cleveland.
