California man suspected of shooting father kills himself

WOODLAKE, Calif. (AP) — A 32-year-old man suspected of fatally shooting his father killed himself while being chased by sheriff’s deputies in central California, authorities said.

The father, Abel Martin, was found dead Saturday afternoon at a home in Woodlake, southeast of Fresno, according to the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators determined the suspect was the 62-year-old’s son, Arnold Martin, and witnesses were able to give officials a description of him and his car.

Martin led deputies on a car chase that ended about 10 miles (16 kilometers) away at Lake Kaweah when he shot and killed himself near a boat ramp, sheriff’s officials said.

Detectives have not released a possible motive for the initial shooting.
