SAVANNAH, GA (February 22, 2012): Additional tests remain to be competed in the death investigation of a Savannah businessman but it appears he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

 Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Violent Crimes detectives on Tuesday recovered a pistol hidden in a bamboo thicket on a lot where patrol officers found his body at Abercorn and 61st streets.

 An autopsy is being conducted by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation crime lab and a final determination will not be made until it is completed.
