From the SCMP: Hong Kong police inspector kills himself inside North Point station

From Coconuts Hong Kong:
"The Hong Kong’s Eastern District expat police chief inspector is thought to have committed suicide at his desk this morning. He was found dead with two gun shot wounds to his temples. [entry & exit wounds]

Andrew Phillips, 50, was off duty when he was discovered around 2:40am, slumped in his chair at North Point Police Station with his service pistol beside him. He was pronounced dead at the scene, with initial investigations ruling it a suicide.

Phillips, who had been working for Hong Kong police for 27 years, left a short note, but gave no explanation of why he took his own life.

Talking to SCMP, a colleague of Phillips' denied that the death has anything to do with the ongoing Occupy Central protests, adding that the inspector was not involved in any related operations.

Phillips leaves behind a wife and two teenage children."

Roz Keep writes:

"The cop that used to be the inspector on Lamma 19 or 20 years ago, Andy Phillips, passed away last night. It is reported in the SCMP that he killed himself. RIP Andy. A good bloke who helped my family through a tough time. Thoughts are with your family."

Many condolences and reminiscences on Facebook already from longtime or former Lammaites who knew him, including some he helped and some he arrested:
Roz Keep, Tracy Lockwood,...
