A French police commissioner reportedly killed himself just hours after the bloody massacre at the Paris office of Charlie Hebdo that left 12 dead.

Helric Fredou, who co-workers claim had been battling depression, shot himself Wednesday night in his office in Limoges, France 3 reported.

The body of 45-year-old Fredou was found by a colleague at approximately 1 a.m. Thursday, according to French media reports, which stated the commissioner was suffering from depression and burnout. Colleagues told France 3 that Fredou, who was single with no children, was feeling overworked and overwhelmed by his job.

Fredou had reportedly met with a family member of one of the Charlie Hebdo victims before committing suicide.
