According to KCRA 3, a 64-year-old man with a "Free Tibet" strung around his neck killed himself "late Monday night outside the Marina District home of his former landlord." It seems that the still unidentified man used a gun to take his own life.

Described as an "Asian male," police spokesman Sgt. Wilfred Williams says that the man "'appeared to have committed suicide' at about 11:46 p.m. in the 2200 block of Beach Street." Also:

The man had recently been evicted from his business, located in another part of the city, and was also recently divorced, Williams said. Apart from the "Free Tibet" sign, there was "no further evidence" linking the apparent suicide "with any political cause," Williams said.

The case is currently under investigation.
