A long car chase with a Dodge Caliber in Phoenix, Ariz., ended with the suspect shooting himself in the head on live TV, appearing to commit suicide.
The driver, recorded live by what appeared to be Fox News helicopters, led law enforcement on a dangerous chase, traveling at speeds of nearly 100 mph.
At the end of the pursuit, he drove off the road, got out of his car and ran down a dirt path for a short period. He then appeared to shoot himself in the head and collapsed.
“We really messed up,” Fox host Sheperd Smith told viewers after the shooting, which he said was on a 5-second time delay and shouldn’t have been aired.
The suspect reportedly stole the car and fired shots at officers before the chase.
This is a developing story. Stay tuned for updates.
