Yakima, Wash. — On Tuesday morning at about 6 a.m. local time, police reported that 21-year-old Jarid Haddock shot himself and committed suicide by inflicting gunshot wounds to the head, according to a Facebook post by Yakima police.

Yakima Valley Emergency Medical Services’ Facebook page reported that he was carrying both a handgun and homemade bomb during a shooting that began around 3:30 a.m. at a Circle K near Nob Hill Boulevard and South 18th Street.

Police responded to a report from an employee, who reported Haddock was acting erratic and threatening others at the store. A video posted to Facebook showed the suspect holding what turned out to be fake black guns and bombs.
