A shooting call that prompted a SWAT response at a southeast Arlington home Friday evening was an apparent suicide, police said.
Officers were first called about 5 p.m. to the home in the 6000 block of Flyers Lane.
A 911 caller had reported that someone had been shot there, said Lt. Chris Cook, police spokesman. When officers arrived, they heard a gunshot coming from inside the home as they walked to the front door.
Out of precaution, SWAT units were called and several nearby homes were evacuated, Cook said.
Never miss a local story.
SWAT officers were able to reach the back door of the home, where they could see an man lying by the front door with a gunshot wound. The man, who has not yet been identified, was pronounced dead at the scene, Cook said.
No one else was at the home during the incident.
The scene was cleared about 8:30 p.m.
