Comanche Co._A desperate man with a gun and a death wish brought a host of law enforcement to a field west of Cache Thursday.
Comanche County deputies barricaded the roads at Post Oak and Cache Road while trying to convince the man not to harm himself. It all began around 1pm when authorities were notified the man left his motorcycle and a suicide note at home on Post Oak.
But when they arrived, they found him sitting in a nearby field with a gun to his head.
Officers spent more than two hours talking to the man before he agreed to be taken into custody and hand over his gun.
"He was depressed. He lost his family. It's a bad situation. He had been dealing with this for a little while and this that it finally just came to a head on him," said Comanche County Sheriff Ken Stradley.
He was taken to a local hospital for observation.
The Comanche County Sheriff's Department is not pressing any charges.
