Kirk Franklin of Saginaw died in the infield during a NASCAR race at Texas Motor Speedway after shooting himself in the head, said the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office on Sunday. He was 42.

Fort Worth police have said a man who was camping in the infield died of a “self-inflicted injury” after getting into an argument with other campers. The incident happened late in the Sprint Cup race. Police spokeswoman Cpl. Tracey Knight has said alcohol may have been a factor. Knight said several people witnessed the incident, but nobody was in danger. Track spokesman Mike Zizzo says the death occurred “in or around a pickup truck” in part of the infield near the middle of the backstretch.

Scaccia had reportedly asked for the strobe lights in the club to be turned off during the performance moments before he collapsed with a seizure, according to the rock blog Blabbermouth.net

Scaccia was born in Babylon, New York, on July 14th, 1965, and formed thrash metallists Rigor Mortis in 1983. Six years later, the guitarist was invited by Al Jourgensen to join Ministry. The first full-length Ministry studio recording to feature Scaccia was the group’s most commercially successful release, 1992’s Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and the Way to Suck Eggs, which spawned such industrial metal classics as “N.W.O.” and “Jesus Built My Hotrod,” and was supported by an appearance on Lollapalooza that same year.
