KCPD: Suspect in double murder killed himself as authorities moved to arrest

From Christine Vendel:

A man accused of a double murder early Thursday reportedly shot himself in the head as authorities moved to arrest him at an Independence motel Thursday night.

Jackson County prosecutors had charged Rufus L. Young, 38, with two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action and one count of child endangerment. He was accused of killing his former girlfriend and her mother, who was holding a small child at the time, inside a Kansas City home.
