LAS VEGAS (Las Vegas Sun) -- A man shot himself dead at the Las Vegas Mormon temple tonight, Metro Police said.

Lt. Mark Reddon said the man, 26, committed suicide in a “courtyard area” off the lobby away from worshipers who were attending a temple session about 6:40 p.m. inside the building, located at 827 Temple View Drive near Bonanza Road and Hollywood Boulevard.

“No one else was threatened,” Reddon said. “The temple had a service going on inside, but (attendees) were inside the building.”

Reddon said the suicide prompted temple officials to cancel the rest of the night's sessions.

According to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints temple’s website, hourly sessions run from 5:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and from 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Wednesdays. It was not known late tonight whether Wednesday morning services would be affected by the incident. Temple officials could not be reached late Tuesday.
