Maryland police officer who was found dead in a parking garage Monday fatally shot himself, authorities said Tuesday.

Montgomery County Police Chief Marcus Jones initially said the death of Officer Thomas Bomba, 38, was being investigated as a homicide. However, authorities said in a statement Tuesday that Bomba had committed suicide.

The Montgomery County Police Department said the incident happened around 9 a.m. Monday in downtown Silver Spring after the officer had been investigating a “disorderly subject.” Nothing was heard from him after his call for assistance.
