Police Chief Paul Bostrack said students and staff at W-K elementary school in the city's east end were told all was safe Friday after police were called to a residence on a report of a gun shot.
Bostrack said a male was found deceased on the front porch of a nearby residence on East Seventh Street.
Bostrack said the man died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
No other details were released.
Bostrack said school officials were notified because a number of police squad cars appeared in the area.
