Man who shot himself in drug store parking lot is now dead

UNION GAP, Wash. -- It is not generally our policy to report on suicides here on Action News, but we did mention an attempt Thursday because it took place in such a public venue.

Shortly after 6:00 p.m. Thursday police responded to a shooting in the Yakima Mall parking lot near the Rite Aid.

They found a man with a gun shot wound to the head.

Police said the man had made threats to take his life and was wondering around.

He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
