Man Committed Suicide in Lobby of Mandeville Police Department
A crazy but sad scene unfolded this past Monday, June 12 at Mandeville Police Department. A Mandeville man apparently committed suicide in the lobby.

As you can imagine, the Mandeville Police Department closed for a period of time to deal with the incident.
