Roswell police: Crime suspect killed himself during search
ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) — A crime suspect who allegedly fired at Rowsell police later fatally shot himself while he was the subject of a search, the Police Department said.
The man fired at least once at one or more officers who responded to a report of an aggravated assault Wednesday night at or near Roswell Mall, the department said in a statement.
The initial gunfire occurred as the man ran away from the mall and a search was then launched, the department said.
According to police, the man shot himself about a half-hour later in a residential neighborhood elsewhere in northern Roswell.
The man's identity wasn't released but police said he appeared to be in his 20s.
No officers were injured.
