Officials: Man kills self after collision

By Alex Bridges -- abridges@nvdaily.com

WINCHESTER -- Virginia State Police say a man killed in a fatal shooting after a hit-and-run crash in Frederick County on Thursday shot himself.

The Officer of the Medical Examiner in Manassas ruled the death of a 53-year-old man a suicide after conducting an autopsy Friday, according to state police spokeswoman Corinne Geller.

The man died of a single gunshot wound, Geller said in a news release.

The agency does not release the identities of suicide victims, according to Geller.
Authorities responded to a minor hit-and-run vehicle crash reported just before 6:20 p.m. at Everette Place and Greenwood Road, according to Geller and Frederick County emergency dispatchers.

A red Mazda had been struck in the Abrins Point subdivision and another vehicle fled the scene, Geller said. No one reported injuries in the crash, according to Geller.

Further investigation of the crash led Trooper J.W. Bennett to a home in the 100 block of Everette Place where he found the Ford Escape reported to have left the scene of the crash, Geller stated.

Shortly after arriving at the residence at 7:20 p.m. the trooper heard a single gunshot from inside the home, according to Geller. Police found the deceased man inside the home, Geller said.

No one else was at home at the time of the shooting, according to Geller.



There had to have been more going on with this man than just a minor collision...

No there would have to be more going on for you or I to end the game like that after a minor collision . Dont give too much credit to humans and think they will always be logical.

A little but more fact checking on the information would have been nice. There's neither an Abrins Point subdivision (You mean Abrams Pointe?) Nor does Everette Place intersect Greenwood Road which was the supposed location of the hit and run..

Someones life is gone - sadly, but veracity in the reporting would be nice also.

Its not sad.

Now now Jack... Be nice, as veracity is a virtue, and misinformation supplied by one who most probably received it from a second-hand source is unacceptable to the viewers.. Just sayin'.. Reggie Arno Danville VA
