WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett says a man fleeing a robbery in April died from a self-inflicted gunshot and not from a shot fired by a sheriff's deputy.

Bennett announced Tuesday that an autopsy found that 26-year-old Horace L. Gwyn died after shooting himself in the head while trying to flee from a robbery at a Credit Union of America office in Wichita.

He says at the same time Gwyn shot himself, a Sedgwick County sheriff's deputy shot him in the upper back. Bennett says that shot would not have been fatal.

Bennett also says the deputy was justified in shooting at Gwyn, who had fired a shot at him.
