Reno police say former Washoe County Deputy District Attorney Roger Whomes died Tuesday night from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police say they were summoned to the 1900 block of Royal Drive around 8:45pm on a report of a man who appeared deceased in a residential driveway.

Police say life-saving efforts were performed on Whomes - and he was transported to Renown Regional Medical Center where he later died.

Police say no foul play is suspected in this case.

Whomes ran against current Washoe County District Attorney Dick Gammick in 2010. Gammick has announced he would not seek re-election this year and will retire once his term ends in 2015.

Whomes was 58.
