Self Inflicted Shooting Following Robbery, Chase

Associated Press - October 25, 2015 7:08 am

Sedgwick County authorities say a man suspected of an armed robbery fatally shot himself after trying to elude officers.

Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Sgt. Lanon Thompson says the man held up a poker room early Saturday.

A witness followed him until officers arrived. A short chase ended when the man’s vehicle crashed.

Thompson says the suspect was found dead in the vehicle with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

KFDI reports it’s unclear if the suspect shot himself before or after the crash.

No one else was injured.

The man’s identity was not initially released.
