Teen Beats Police To Punch, Shoots Self

So the 19-year-old murder suspect who was in a shoot-out with deputies wasn't killed by cops but by himself.

And he shot himself twice in the torso to get the job done.

Sounds crazy, but based on what's been reported by witnesses and the Medical Examiner's Office, it seems to have been what happened. While you're reading the Sun-Sentinel article check out the thoughtful sentiments and piercing analyses in the comments section (example: "Damn, who is going to take my order at McDonalds now?").

Here's the Miami Herald's report.
