The parking lot at Playfair is closed off after a man shot himself inside his car on Thursday.

Sgt. Travis Welsh with the Missoula Police Department said the man's brother called 911 about 1 p.m., saying his brother was suicidal. Welsh said about 20 minutes later, the man called 911 and agreed to meet with an officer.

The officer pulled into the Playfair parking lot just after 2 p.m., and the man shot himself.
