• Police: Man exchanges gunfire with officers, shoots self

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police say a man who fired on officers in northeast Philadelphia and then shot himself in the head after the officers returned fire has died.

    A police spokeswoman says officers in the city's Summerdale section were heading to a domestic dispute just after 6:30 p.m. Saturday when they were flagged down concerning an armed man.

    Police say the man fled as officers approached, and a foot chase began. Police say the man reached in his waistband, turned and fired several shots at the officers, who both returned fire.

    Police said the man then fled further and shot himself in the head. The officers were uninjured. A police spokeswoman says the man died but it's unknown whether he died of the self-inflicted shot or was hit by the officers' gunshots.
