SAGAMORE HILLS, OHIO (AP) - Police say an Ohio man fatally shot himself in the head moments after realizing he had run over a friend in a bar parking lot.

Summit County Sheriff’s Sgt. Scott Cottle says witnesses saw Erich Schultz and Stacy DiJulius arguing in the parking lot after both had been drinking at a bar in Sagamore Hills, about 20 miles south of Cleveland.

Cottle says 38-year-old Schultz tried to drive away in his Jeep, but DiJulius tried to enter the vehicle as it moved and fell under one of the tires. Cottle says it appears Schultz accidentally ran over DiJulius and he felt so bad about it that he took out a gun and shot himself.

The 39-year-old DiJulius died at a hospital after Saturday night’s accident. Schultz died on Sunday.
