On July second, 1961 Ernest Hemingway killed himself with a self-inflicted shotgun wound to his head, right above the eyes. 

Hemingway had suffered several complications due to his hereditary diabetic condition that ran in his family. It causes a damage to the pancreatic functions which leads to depression. 
He had committed suicide exactly three weeks after his 62nd birthday. He rested the butt of the double-barrelled shotgun on the floor of his home, leaned over the muzzle of the gun, placing it right above the eyes and pulled both the triggers. 
Eventually, judged not responsible for his death, he was buried in a Roman Catholic service.

He died on July 2, 1961 as a result of committing suicide by shooting himself. He was very depressed due to sickness, which led to him not being able to write, therefore, he shot himself.

He killed himself after a lonley bitter life without a true love. He also went through many traumas during the First World War which may have contributed to his depression.
