Traffic was halted in an intersection of Del Rey in West Los Angeles for an hour after a man was observed sitting inside a vehicle with a gun in his lap, authorities said.

The discovery was made about 3:15 p.m. at Glencoe and Maxella avenues, according to Officer Drake Madison of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Section.

The area was cleared and all traffic halted while officers carefully approached the vehicle, Madison said.

About 4 p.m., they were able to determine the man had shot himself to death and the gun was recovered, he said.
