NEWBURY, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say a man fatally shot himself during a minor traffic stop in Newbury.

Trooper Tyler Davidson says he stopped the vehicle because it had an expired inspection sticker around 11 a.m. Wednesday. The Caledonian-Record reports the driver was a 20-year-old Derby man who spoke with the officer briefly.

Davidson says he returned to his vehicle to run the driver’s information. Police say the driver - who was still sitting in his vehicle - apparently shot himself.

State police say the investigation is ongoing, but all indications are that the man “took his own life.”
