The body of a man was discovered Monday on a gate-ball (a game similar to croquet) lawn in the city of Urayasu, Chiba Prefecture.
At 7:05 a.m., police received a phone call saying that a man believed to be in his 50s had been found lying face-up on the ground near a storage shed at the gate-ball field.
In an even more dramatic twist, the man was holding a handgun in his right hand.
Police said the man was dead on the scene, having suffered a gunshot to the right side of his head.
Urayasu City Police say that they are working to identify the man and that, with no competing evidence found thus far, the man likely committed suicide.
