'Bizarre' Las Vegas Crime Spree Ends in Suicide

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas police say a 42-year-old man killed himself after a "bizarre" crime spree in which he groped two women, shot at a boy on a bicycle, tried to kidnap four people and run over two men and rob another person.

Police said nobody was seriously injured during Sunday's 105-minute spree by a man driving a black Volkswagen Beetle and carrying a gun. Police say they chased the man from various locations in the north and west parts of town.

Authorities say that when they caught up to him on the city's west side, he drove into a wall. Police say he shot himself when they approached his car.

Police have not released the man's identity.
