RIP.
But this sounds very very odd.

An investigation has begun into the death of a senior detective in a Dublin Garda station last night.
The dead officer, who was in his 50s and one of the most seasoned detectives in the force, was found dead in an office at Ballymun Garda station, north Dublin.
Garda sources said there was a deep sense of shock across the force at the death of the officer, who was well-known nationally and highly-respected.
He played a leading role in the investigation into the fatal gun attack in the Regency Hotel, Whitehall, north Dublin, two years ago.

It could well have been a sudden heart attack we need to wait until the coroner is on the case but RIP anyway.

This is not a death from natural causes.

RIP.

No foul play is suspected and nobody else is being sought in connection with the officer’s death. The incident is being treated as a personal tragedy.
A Garda-issue firearm has been taken from the scene for analysis.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

It’s what happens when you are at the coal face, and you are a sentient human being.

I'm assuming the firearm was used or else why even mention it. There was another like this I think 2 or 3 years ago in another station.
