PITTSBURGH (AP) — Police in the Pittsburgh suburbs say a man's apparent suicide in a hospital parking lot involved chemicals so noxious that a hazardous materials team was needed to handle the incident.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported ( ) Saturday that a 20-year-old Dormont man was pronounced dead after a security guard found his body in the lot at the Kane Scott Regional Care Center.

The paper says the car had a note warning people to stay away, and the note included a skull and crossbones.

Dormont Police Sgt. James Burke tells the paper that the material could have been fatal if a first responder had opened the car door.
