An elderly man was found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound in his Hyde Park neighborhood condominium when Cook County Sheriff’s police arrived to serve an eviction notice Tuesday morning.

Chicago Police were notified about 9:50 a.m. that the man, believed to be in his late 60s or early 70s, was found dead of an apparent suicide in the condo in the 1000 block of East 53rd Street, News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said. Police are conducting a death investigation.

Sheriff’s police serve the eviction notices throughout Cook County.

An autopsy to determine the exact cause and manner of death is expected to be conducted Wednesday.
