An apparently self-inflicted gunshot took the life of a Pekin man this weekend in woods along Broadway, police said Monday.


The man, identified by the Tazewell County Coroner's Office as John L. Dupage, 56, was pronounced dead at the scene Sunday after police responded to the 2300 block of Broadway shortly after 12:30 p.m.


No other foul play is suspected and area residents were not in further danger, a police spokeswoman said.


An autopsy was conducted later Sunday, with final results pending a toxicology report.
