Lt. Craig Cvetan (suh-VEHT’-ehn) says the 23-year-old man from the Columbus suburb of Franklin Township died at the scene. He says the man was not a state employee.
Cvetan says it’s unclear why the man killed himself.
Authorities say nobody saw the shooting, but the man was seen on Statehouse grounds just before the gunshot.
