He later took his life near Longview Lake. Authorities found him dead inside his vehicle.

There were several witnesses to the deadly shooting, Lee's Summit Community Interaction Officer Carmen Spaeth told FOX4 Friday morning.

"Because of the witness information, they developed a possible suspect and a possible vehicle description," Spaeth said. "And through trying to determine who that was, if that was the correct information, it led us to this area. Also, we had family members who had spoken with the suspect, which also helped us locate the suspect and speak with him."

Spaeth said around 9:30 a.m., the Jackson County Sheriff's Office alerted Lee's Summit officers that they had located the possible vehicle and the possible suspect.

FOX4's Shayla Patrick spoke with Deputy Raashid Brown who said the incident at Longview Lake ended with the suspect taking his own life. See her entire interview in the video player below.
