Huntington Beach police believe an elderly man shot and killed himself Friday near the Bolsa Chica Reserve, according to police.

Authorities said they received a phone call at 12:18 p.m. from a resident who heard gunshots near a dead-end section of Graham Street near the northeast side of the reserve.

A suicide note was found near the body and the elderly man died from self-inflicted gunshot wounds, police said.
