Sheriff's deputies have concluded that a man in El Sobrante found dead on New Year's Day died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee said.
Deputies were called around 5:35 p.m. Tuesday to an apartment in the 4600 block of Appian Way in El Sobrante on a report of a disturbance there involving a person with a gun, Lee said.
Arriving deputies heard a shot and then located a man, later identified as Alexander Lipkins, 29, of Suisun City, inside the apartment's bathroom suffering from a single gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
