Recommendations to reporters re suicide from the AFSP:
Don't sensationalize the death or frame it as a trend.
Avoid stigmatizing language like “committed suicide," instead opt for factual language like “died by suicide.”
Include a sidebar on warning signs and potential actions.
Provide National Suicide Prevention number, 800-273-8255.
Make sure that someone at risk of suicide can't access dangerous items including guns: onethingtodo.org

85% of suicide attempts with a gun end in death; without a gun, 5% or fewer suicide attempts result in death.
