Suspect kills self when faced by officer

LONGVIEW, TX Police say 28-year-old David Cody Stewart of Nacogdoches shot himself after a Longview officer confronted him.

Longview police Sgt. Shaun Pendleton says the officer, whom he didn't identify, saw a pickup truck late Saturday that matched the description of the getaway vehicle used in at least five heists.

Pendleton says the officer began chasing the suspect, heard a gunshot and waited for backup. They found the suspect next to the truck.

An autopsy has been ordered. Pendleton says no officers fired their weapons.
