COTTONWOOD, Ariz. – Authorities in northern Arizona say a man fatally shot
himself after robbing a credit union in Cottonwood.

Cottonwood police received a call from a Credit Union West employee shortly
before 1 p.m. Thursday who said the credit union had been robbed at a gunpoint
and the robber had fled on foot.

Police say the employee gave a description of the robber.

Officers later responded to a report of a man with a rifle jumping over the
fence onto a homeowner’s property.

hands, but the man turned the gun on himself.

Authorities say the name of the 38-year-old man is being withheld until his
relatives can be notified.
