Man found shot behind restroom

A Huntsville man died of a self-inflicted gunshot behind a gas station restroom on Alabama 20, Decatur police said Tuesday. Officers searched the area of Raceway, 23233 Alabama 20, early Sunday after finding a car stopped in the grassy median between entrances to the gas station with its headlights on and airbag deployed.

Behind the restroom, they discovered the body of James Lamar Heintschel, 25. Heint-schel apparently died of a self-inflicted wound to his right temple from a .40-caliber handgun.
