BLACKMAN TWP, Mich. — The man wanted in a fatal shooting late Thursday night in Jackson County's Blackman Township has shot himself, police said.

Blackman-Leoni Department of Public Safety say they got a tip just after 9 a.m. that a car matching the description of the 2012 Toyota Prius driven by 31-year-old Lance James Hines was in the parking lot of an auto parts store on Prospect Street in Jackson. The windows of the car were covered from the inside.

Officers from multiple departments responded. A negotiator tried to get someone inside the car to respond but got no reaction.

Officers then heard what sounded like a gunshot, police said, forced their way into the vehicle and found that Hines had shot himself.

Police disarmed him and brought him to Henry Ford Allegiance Hospital.
