Man dead from self-inflicted gunshot wound at Civic psych unit

A man is dead after it appears he shot himself at the Ottawa Hospital Civic campus this morning.

A patient tells CTV Ottawa she was waiting on the sixth floor in the outpatient psychiatric unit before 11AM when she heard a sound.

"I heard a loud bang which I assumed was something falling. Another patient in the waiting room said it was a gunshot."

A man was found dead behind a bathroom door.

The hospital says it's now reviewing its security while Ottawa Police are investigating.
