Flagler Sheriff investigating suspicious death

Flagler County Sheriff’s detectives are investigating Saturday’s shooting death of a 56-year-old Palm Coast man according to a police report received by Historic City News.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to a 911 call around 12:13 a.m. to a home on 15 Riverview Bend North. They found James Allen Small in the second floor of the condominium. He suffered a gunshot wound to the eye. A witness told detectives that Small shot himself with a 9mm Ruger semi-automatic handgun.

“We are looking at all the circumstances surrounding this shooting before we close out this case,” said Sheriff Donald W. Fleming. “We do know that there was a domestic disturbance just prior to the shooting, but we are looking for more details.”

Detectives said Small lived in the Tidelands community for about six months.
