Suspect in slaying commits suicide
The man sought in the weekend slaying of his mother in Prince George’s County fatally shot himself in Delaware after leading officers on a car chase, the Wilmington Police Department said yesterday.
The suspect, Christopher Gary, 27, of Germantown, was apprehended by Wilmington police officers Monday night and engaged them in a gunbattle. However, the autopsy shows that Gary died by shooting himself in the mouth, authorities said.
City police have placed the two officers on administrative leave until an internal investigation is complete.
