Target Store Suicide: Fontana Man Stabs Himself To Death With Store Knife

A Target store, in Fontana, California, found itself in a irrational situation. Presumed as a customer, a man grabbed a store knife, and stabbed himself to death in front of customers.

At approximately 11 a.m. on Wednesday, March 30, an unidentified man walked into Target and headed directly towards the kitchen decor section of the store. Once in the section, the suicide event unfolded as the man took a packaged knife from its encasing and began to stab himself.

According to the Fontana Police Department, the man died of a self-inflicted wound to the torso. Police responded to the Target suicide call. Upon arrival, they found the unidentified man on the floor, bleeding out.

Although this was a suicide situation, the man didn't attempt to take any other victims with him. The police statement mentions that everyone else was okay.

However, Fox 5 - San Diego reports that Target continued to allow everyone to shop., even though this man was killing himself. Target store customer Marlene Rodriguez stated as follows.

"It's disgusting that they would let people continue to shop when there's a dead body inside."

Yet, the report mentions that, around 3 p.m., sources attempted to reach a Target spokesperson and was told that the store was closed. However, Target didn't specify at what time the store closed.

All in all, the Target death has been ruled a suicide, and the city's coroner will not release the man's name until the next-of-kin has identified the body, says Fox 5 - San Diego.
