Deputies say a man wanted for shooting at a San Bernardino County sheriff's deputy shot and killed himself.

Deputies found the body of Brian David Forrett, 52, on Saturday. Authorities believe he shot himself. Investigators found Forrett dead inside his car along a mountain road near Angelus Oaks.

Deputies had been looking for Forrett for shooting at a deputy in Yucaipa on Friday and then ramming the deputy's cruiser with his Buick. The deputy wasn't hurt.

Forrett is also a person of interest in the murder of an elderly woman in Riverside last month.
