PALM BEACH, Fla. - A Florida murder suspect is dead after a shootout with deputies that began when investigators following him pulled over his Uber driver in a traffic stop.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said the man fatally shot himself after exchanging gunfire with deputies.
The suspect, who wasn't hit by the deputies' gunfire, fled to a building about a block away, where deputies found blood.
The officers thought he had been wounded, but later determined he fatally shot himself.
The department posted a photo of a gun between the dead suspect's legs.
Two deputies were placed on administrative leave, which is protocol for officer-involved shootings. Neither were injured.
