Orange County sheriff's deputies were investigating the shooting death today of a man in a Mission Viejo cul-de-sac as a suicide.

A man called deputies from a home on Argento and said he was going to hurt himself and, seconds later at 4:17 a.m., dispatchers got a call from an nearby resident who reported hearing a gunshot and seeing a man down on the street, Lt. Jeff Hallock said.

The name of the man, who was declared dead at the scene, was not immediately available.

Argento was blocked at Baccara Drive to accommodate the investigation, but residents were being allowed in and out of their homes.

Kyle, I'm not really sure where you see "negative" comments directed towards Melissa and Tanya, especially from John. Just want to point out that John Locke did not do anything wrong either, as you like to word it. He did not attack anyone in his comments. The comments John posted were just questions in response to the different opinions of RSM citizens. Tanya and Melissa are allowed to have opinions, so John is allowed to have an opinion. There a few other people on here that did make direct comments towards people that questioned their intelligence, however, John was questioning the logic behind their opinion. I will continue to feel for you as you cope with seeing "this guys brain" because no one should see their neighbor (or anyone) like that. I'm not quite sure what you going through this experience has to do with John questioning the logic of other's political opinions. I hope counseling does you well and will help you through the grieving process.

Thank you for clearing these things up John Locke. Tragedies like this are hard to comprehend, and is something People will never get over. My prayers are with the family of this man, I am still heartbroken. I pray this family can somehow move forward with their life and honor their loved one to the best of their ability!

@Kyle Engelbrecht Sending positive vibes to you in the counseling process, as well as everyone else impacted by this horrific and tragic event.

Nicole. Until you witness a man kill himself with a shotgun at 4 in the morning, 10 feet from your house in the middle of the street, then your comments will be seen in a new light. I do respect that everyone has the right to freedom of speech, and I appreciate everyone's thoughts, including your own! However, due to the sake of the horrific situation that happened, why the hell does this have to do with anything "political." Your post, including "this guys brains" in quotation marks makes it seem like Im trying to be this dramatic person that is making this stuff up . You have no clue how gruesome the scene was, so be quiet . ALL people need to talk about is the fact that it was a horrible situation and to pray for his family. THAT'S IT, NOTHING ELSE!Leave the POLITICAL bullshit out of this. These comments need to stop, let this man rest in peace. I'm done writing on here.

I just want to mention that just because someone is mentally ill does not mean that they WILL kill people. And guns aren't the problem. Its people dismissing mental health patients and telling them that they are either fine or that they shouldn't seek help because it'll make them look "crazy." Its okay not to be okay in the head. We shouldn't make mental health a taboo subject.
