A woman found dead of a gunshot wound on the street Tuesday afternoon is believed to have committed suicide.

Grass Valley Police officers were dispatched at about 1:40 p.m. to a residence in the 200 block of Northridge Drive in Morgan Ranch for a call regarding a woman with a gunshot wound, said Sgt. Clint Bates.

Officers arrived at the scene to find the woman lying in the street on Horizon Circle with a gun near her chest, Bates said. An investigation is still ongoing, but Bates said the gunshot appeared to be self-inflicted.
