ANKARA (AA) - Peru declared three days mourning Thursday in honor of former President Alan Garcia, who committed suicide amid a corruption probe.

Garcia, 69, shot himself in the head as police arrived at his home in Lima’s affluent Miraflores neighborhood Wednesday to arrest him for alleged links to a continent-wide corruption scandal involving Brazilian construction giant Odebrecht.

He was rushed to a nearby hospital but died shortly after from a massive brain hemorrhage and cardiorespiratory arrest.

Garcia will be given a funeral with honors, according to the national news agency Andina.

He served as president from 1985 to 1990 and 2006 to 2011.
