Finger Lakes Times |
"A Five Points Correctional Facility officer died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound Tuesday following a collision at the prison's gate. Mark V. Mullen, 44, of 300 Halseyville Road, Ithaca, was pronounced dead at the scene by Seneca County Coroner Allen Hawker. Sheriff's deputies reported Mullen was driving a prison pickup truck east out of Five Points around 1 p.m. when he crashed into a town of Hector tractor-trailer... Witnesses told deputies Mullen got out of the truck, walked around it out of sight, and then they heard a gunshot. Mullen was found unconscious next to the vehicle with a handgun lying next to him, deputies said. An autopsy showed he died from a single self-inflicted gunshot wound."
