HOQUIAM, Wash. - A Thanksgiving day argument ended in suicide last night in Hoquiam, after a 29 year old man allegedly pistol whipped a female family member then drove into town and shot himself. Sgt. Jeff Salstrom tells KBKW they responded to the home off of State Route 109 in Moclips just after 8 last night. Two assault victims said the man left with a handgun, heading toward Hoquiam. Salstrom spotted his vehicle on State Route 109 just before 9, as he pulled it over in the parking lot of the Hoquiam 7-11 he heard a loud-muffled sound from behind the tinted windows.
Once officers secured the scene and approached with a ballistics shield they broke out the driver's side window to confirm the man had died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Two Hoquiam, and three Aberdeen police units responded, as well as Hoquiam fire and ambulance. Salstrom said the investigation is ongoing.
