Norwalk police said a man fatally shot himself Wednesday evening outside Chestnut Glen Apartments on Chestnut Street.
The man's death appears to be a suicide, police said, and nothing immediately suspicious was found at the scene.
A caller alerted police to the incident at about 6 p.m. The man's body was found just outside an apartment unit. Police said they also recovered a handgun.
Officers have not released the man's name because they are still working to contact his family members.
