The family of the man who shot himself on the roof of his garage last week have described him as a person who "dedicated his life to his family and friends".
A post-mortem examination has revealed Brian Palmer, 63. from Littlehampton, died from a single gunshot wound to the head.
Police were called to the family home in Horsham Road early last Friday morning after Mr Palmer's wife had dialled 999 to say she had been assaulted by her husband.
When police arrived they found Mr Palmer on the roof of his garage brandishing a shotgun. He shot himself before an armed police unit could get there.
