Man to undergo evaluation after suicide threat

February 02, 1994

A 24-year-old Shady Side man was ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation at Anne Arundel Medical Center after threatening to commit suicide with a shotgun in his home Monday afternoon.

At 2:45 p.m., police were sent to a home in the 1100 block of Grove Road after the man's wife called police and said he had called her office and threatened to kill himself unless she came home.

When police called the home, then knocked on the door, no one answered. At 4:52 p.m., officers went by the home again and found the man inside. He told the officers he had a shotgun and threatened to kill himself, the police report said.

Relatives tried to talk him into coming out of the house, but he refused, the police report said. About 6:45 p.m., members of the police Special Operations Section forced their way into the house and grabbed the shotgun away.
