A man arrested less than three weeks ago for allegedly beating his ex-girlfriend with a shotgun used the same type of weapon to shoot himself after a domestic disturbance in the parking lot of the Gramercy Apartments in the early morning hours of Aug. 14, according to the Carmel Police Dept.
Police said they found Scott Nocco, 28, dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound when they responded to a domestic disturbance call in the 1200 block of Indian Trail Dr. at 2:12 a.m.
Nocco was facing several charges, including criminal confinement, criminal recklessness and domestic battery, after allegedly beating his ex-girlfriend with a shotgun July 25 in her apartment. The gun fired during the July incident but did not strike anyone.
Nocco jumped from a balcony and fled the scene while a SWAT team was on the way to the call. Police later discovered and arrested him at his residence in the 4900 block of Woodcreek Drive.
Nocco was set to have a jury trial Nov. 12.
Carmel police do not release identifying information of a victim in an ongoing investigation.
