A man was found shot to death inside a home on Canyon Lake Drive in east Modesto, California, on Thursday, Aug. 9, 2018. Modesto Police Department officers and detectives were at the scene investigating.

A report of a shooting drew several police units to a northeast Modesto home Thursday night, in a case determined to be suicide, police said.

Just after 8 p.m., officers were called to a house on Canyon Lake Drive just north of Naraghi Lake off Hashem Drive.

Investigators determined the victim was “a distraught male who apparently committed suicide,” Lt. Mark Weiglein said Friday. There were no circumstances to make the case suspicious, he said.
