The Yuma Fire Department is mourning the loss of one of its very own.
The Yuma County Sheriff's Office arrived at a home in the 3200 of West Patricia Lane Wednesday morning at about 7:45 a.m. There they discovered Jeff Green's, 46, body. Deputies say he died from a self-inflicted gun shot wound.
Officials from the Yuma Fire Department say Green was a fire captain and are saddened by the news.
Just a couple weeks ago, Green allegedly kidnapped his daughter before being spotted in Utah. The Yuma Sun reports Green was out on bail awaiting charges. YFD has released the following statement that says in part:
"The Yuma Fire Department family is saddened by this morning's tragic death of Fire Captain Jeff Green and expresses its sympathy for Captain Green's family. Fire Chief Jack Mcarthur would like the Yuma community to know that 'our focus at this tragic time, is on supporting the family in their need.'"
