An inspector who surveyed a Philadelphia building before it collapsed last week, killing six people, has committed suicide, a city official confirmed.

Deputy Mayor Everett Gillison said the inspector was found fatally shot in a pickup truck Wednesday night. The man was a Department of Licenses and Inspections employee who had inspected the building May 14. CBS station KYW reports that was the last inspection before the fatal accident.
