Police say the suspect shot the woman in the parking lot at Smith’s grocery store then fled the scene in a vehicle.

He was found nearby, armed with a semiautomatic handgun that he pointed at himself, and police said he refused to surrender.

Surrounding houses were evacuated as police negotiated with the man for several hours before he shot himself, police said.
