LOS ANGELES, Calif. (

NBC LOS ANGELES

) - A man died from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound near the new "Despicable Me" ride at Universal Studios Friday afternoon, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The shooting was reported just before 3 p.m.

Aerial footage showed rides had been stopped and that area of the park had been cleared of parkgoers.

No one else was injured. It's not clear if the man was an employee or a park visitor.
