Inglewood shooting suspect found dead after standoff

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

A suspect who barricaded himself following a shooting in Inglewood on Wednesday was found dead, authorities said.

Police responded to the shooting in the 200 block of N. Market Street just before 11 a.m. A gunshot victim was taken to a local hospital, where she died.

Officers surrounded the building where the suspect was believed to have barricaded himself. A SWAT team entered the business at about 1:30 p.m. and found a man in the bathroom with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was declared dead at the scene.

A motive for the shooting has not yet been determined, but police say the victim and the suspect knew each other. Their names have not been released.

Anyone with information was urged to call the Inglewood Police Department at (310) 412-5246, or the 24-hour anonymous hotline at (888) 41-CRIME.
