    Fourth District Officers were on patrol when they spotted a man with a gun in the 3000 block of Sandra Drive.  When the officers went to investigate, the man began running on foot.  The officers began chasing the man at which time he fired several shots and continued to run.  Officers did not return fire and no one was injured by the gunfire.  Officers requested additional units and set up a perimeter.  As the officers were searching for the man, they heard one gunshot and discovered the man had shot himself in the face in the back of an abandon apartment complex in the 100 block of WestPark Court.  He died on the scene.
