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.
