Elderly Man Commits Suicide in Motel 6 Parking Lot

An 82-year-old man, Donald Bruce Hansford, fatally shot himself with a handgun in the parking lot of the Motel 6 on the 3500 block of State Street this week rather than check himself into an elder-care facility. Authorities believe Hansford took care not to shoot himself inside the motel or inside his car to minimize the mess others would have to clean up.
