Montana Tech administrators report a student died intentionally in a parking lot Monday, and was found by another person who happened to be passing by.
Butte-Silver Bow Undersheriff George Skuletich said around 3 or 4 p.m. a passerby found a 19-year-old man in his car in the parking lot behind the new energy building on campus.
The man was alone and Skuletich said he had a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The name of the student has not been released.
The school will have full-time licensed counselors on staff tomorrow for student support.
