Armed man kills self in Pennsylvania sports store bathroom

FAIRLESS HILLS, Pa. — Police say an armed man who barricaded himself inside an eastern Pennsylvania sports store bathroom has killed himself.

Police say the man entered Dick’s Sporting Goods in Fairless Hills at around 7:30 p.m. Saturday and asked to see a shotgun and ammunition. Once the clerk handed those over, the man pulled out a handgun and ordered the worker to undo the shotgun’s gun lock.

Police say the man then barricaded himself inside a bathroom in the Bucks County store. He didn’t take any hostages.

The store and nearby businesses were evacuated during the hourslong standoff.

Police say the gunman died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. No one else was hurt.
