Police say an off-duty Temple officer found deceased Friday afternoon appears to have suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Our news partner, KWTX, reports that officers were called to a home in the 1400 block of Blue Leaf Drive in Temple shortly after 2:20 PM Friday. Upon arrival, they determined that the home belonged to a Tempe PD officer who'd been with the department for three years.

The officer's name wasn't immediately released pending notification of next of kin. Counseling services were being made available for officer who knew the deceased.
