Man makes second suicide attempt
(2008-02-18)
(WOUB) - The man who threatened to commit suicide at Ohio University's Baker Center 10 days ago, has done it again.

This time he was on top of the Athens Parking Garage.

Police officers sneaked up on him and shot him with a tazer gun to thwart the suicide effort.

They shot him a second time because they thought he might have a weapon.

The man had called 911 to say what he was going to do.

Lieutenant Anthony Fish says the man was taken to O'Bleness Hospital to be evaluated by Tri-County Mental Health and Counseling.
