WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Sedgwick County authorities say a man who died after an attempted robbery shot himself in the head.

Sheriff Jeff Easter says the suspect, 26-year-old Horace Gwyn, was also shot by a sheriff's deputy after he ran from the Credit Union of America early Wednesday. But the county coroner ruled a self-inflicted gunshot wound was the cause of death.

Police say Gwyn ambushed two workers who opened the credit union. When he forced them into a bank vault, a silent alarm went off, and a nearby deputy responded.

When the deputy arrived, Gwyn ran out of the bank. Easter says Gwyn fired at the deputy then turned and raised the gun to his head. The deputy fired, hitting Gwyn in the back at the same time Gwyn shot himself.
