ORANGE PARK, Fla. -

State officials have concluded that a teenager who died after a standoff with Clay County sheriff's deputies died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The Florida Times-Union obtained Friday the results of a Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation into the death of 15-year-old Hadrian Miquel Rabadan.

The teen suffered a single gunshot wound to the head near his Orange Park home on June 8. Investigators said a Clay County deputy fired a single shot at Hadrian when he heard a gunshot from the teen's position behind a bush. A gun was found by the teen.

The Duval County Medical Examiner ruled the teen's death a suicide. An FDLE spokeswoman said the fatal gunshot wound was self-inflicted.

Deputies went to Hadrian's house after his grandmother reported that he was making suicidal threats.
