On the morning of Wednesday, July 19th, a park resource employee and an SCA work crew came upon a 50-year-old man at Keys View who was suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Rangers responded and provided first aid until an ambulance arrived. He was flown to Desert Regional Medical Center in Palm Spring and is expected to recover.

The man reportedly shot himself the previous evening at Inspiration Point, a mile away. Although he said he’d shot himself by accident, evidence indicates that it was intentional and premeditated. The man’s 9 mm pistol was found along with a note describing his intent to commit suicide and his last wishes.
