REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Tragedy at a Makati mall last week where authorities say an American man from California killed himself inside a shooting range.

Jeffrey Allan Klein, 60, reportedly rented a 9-millimeter pistol last Thursday at the Jethro Westpoint Gun Club Firing Range in the Makati Square Mall.

After a round of target practice, investigators said Allen requested a second target from an employee.

Police said Klein committed suicide by shooting himself in the mouth after the employee left him.

The employee reportedly returned to find Klein dead on the floor with the pistol.

Authorities are investigating if the firing range is to blame for the incident.

The firing range’s policy is not to leave customers unattended.
