(Newser) – A suspect in the murder of publicist Ronni Chasen killed himself as police served a search warrant at a Hollywood apartment house. The suspect—whose name and exact connection to the killing haven't been disclosed—pulled out a pistol and shot himself in the head when confronted by police in the lobby of the apartment complex, Beverly Hills police sources tell the Los Angeles Times. Chasen was shot dead inside her Mercedes-Benz last month as she drove home from the premiere of Burlesque.
