    A 28-year-old Neenah man shot himself Wednesday morning in front of Neenah police officers, according to the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office.

    The department stated in a press release that the man called 911 about 7:30 a.m. and said he was going to kill himself. Neenah officers found him sitting on a bench in Conservation Park in the Town of Neenah at South Commercial Street and South Park Avenue. As officers walked up to talk to the man he pulled out a handgun before walking away. He then fired one shot into the ground and fired a second in a suicide attempt, the sheriff’s department said.

    Officers provided medical help and he was taken to Theda Clark Medical Center for lifethreatening injuries.
