CORONER: MAN KILLED DURING POLICE SHOOTOUT SHOT HIMSELF

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – Authorities say a man who was killed during a shootout with Birmingham police shot himself.

The coroner’s office says 26-year-old Larry Dejuan Henderson of Birmingham took his own life during a confrontation that left a police officer wounded on Friday.

Al.com quotes a witness as saying the man shot himself in the head after wounding a police officer during a confrontation outside a small restaurant. It began when a police officer questioned the man after he initially refused to pay for food.

The officer was shot twice in the right arm but is in good condition.
