According to reports, officers transported an 83-year-old man to East Liverpool City Hospital after an incident Aug. 19 near the "tubs" area of Fredricktown.
Police were advised of his location by a taxi driver, who dropped him off there but had become concerned the man may harm himself.
Once on scene, officers spoke with the man, who reported he had been depressed and wanted to come to his favorite spot. Others in the area stated the man arrived only shortly before the officers and they didn't notice anything unusual.
The man was wearing blue jeans, a long-sleeve shirt and also a quilted flannel shirt, which officers questioned due to the reported 80-plus degree temperature. The man stated "no" when asked if he was hot, but officers reported the man appeared confused and also seemed to have a hard time hearing.
When asked if he had a weapon, the man acknowledged he did. Officers located a loaded .22 caliber revolver in the man's front pocket of his jeans. The man stated the gun was to protect himself from wild dogs in the area. When asked, the man stated he did not want to harm himself. Later the man told paramedics on scene he was depressed over some medical conditions and the fact no one would help him. He refused transport via ambulance, leading the police to drive the man to City Hospital.
