ORLANDO — A man fatally shot himself after renting a gun at an Orlando shooting range.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office said Valentin Pepelea, 43, of Canada rented a gun Wednesday night at Rieg's Gun Shop. After firing at targets, he shot himself in the head, deputies said.
This is the fourth self-inflicted shooting at a Central Florida gun range since April, and there was a case in Delray Beach last month.
Last month, a woman was injured when she tried to shoot herself at East Orange Shooting Sports east of Winter Park.
On April 5, an Altamonte Springs woman with a history of mental problems shot her 20-year-old son and then herself at Shoot Straight in Casselberry. He died at the scene, and she died at a hospital.
Three weeks later, a 26-year-old committed suicide at the same range.
