FALMOUTH (WGME) -- Police confirm a 17-year-old killed himself today.
Falmouth's police chief says they learned from a Facebook post that a young man was upset and threatening suicide.
They responded to a house on Inverness Road, and closed nearby Winn road.
Around 3:30 p.m., our staff heard what sounded like a gunshot and police started evacuating homes in the area.
Once they established the death was a suicide they let people back in and opened the road.
