Too bad. Hope he comes out okay.

Although...you must wonder why he chose a church as the place to shoot himself in the rectory. Hmmm.

You would think he would know that was a cardinal sin. Maybe someone has a vestried interest. Or perhaps he hoped he would be a deacon of light to others. All in all it vergers on the ridiculous.

Boom-boom. Big grin

A priest's residence, generally located adjacent to the church. Rectories also contain parish offices and sometimes public meeting rooms.

Man Shoots Himself in Church Rectory
Wed Apr 3, 4:31 PM ET

NEW YORK (AP) - A man who said he was depressed fatally shot himself in the head Wednesday in the rectory of St. Patrick's Cathedral while talking with a priest, authorities and church officials said.

The man, covered in blood, was taken away by ambulance and died at a hospital.

The man's name was not immediately released. Authorities said he had a note in his wallet; the contents were not disclosed.

The priest was shaken but apparently not hurt.

Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said the man appeared in the rectory reception area, waited for a priest to be summoned, then went with the priest into a room, where he put the gun to his chin and pulled the trigger.

The Roman Catholic cathedral is on Fifth Avenue and 50th Street in busy midtown Manhattan.
