North County Times, Sept. 11, 2012
Camp Pendleton authorities say someone shot themselves to death at the base golf course Tuesday morning.
A base spokesman said authorities were called to the Marine Memorial Golf Course regarding some kind of incident involving an individual, who later committed suicide.
Authorities received the first call at about 9:35 a.m. The shooting apparently took place a short time later.
The base spokesman said the victim was not an active-duty member of the military but that he could not provide an approximate age or gender.
The individual was pronounced dead by base emergency medical workers at 10:35 a.m.
The incident is being probed by the Naval Criminal Investigative Services, a civilian law enforcement agency that investigates crimes and related incidents involving Navy and Marine Corps bases and troops.
The golf course and its facilities are closed until further notice, the base said.
