Winn Rd. in Falmouth closed due to police incident


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.
