YAKIMA, Wash. -- Police say the man suspected of shooting and killing three people at a Circle K store in Yakima is now dead.

Yakima Police Chief Matt Murray said a family member of the suspected gunman called police at around 2:15 p.m. and said he was behind some warehouses of 11th Street and Pendleton.

Officers responded to the scene and found the suspect, later identified as 21-year-old Jarid Haddock. 

It's believed that Haddock shot himself when police located him, and medical personnel were unable to save him. 

The shooting at the Circle K happened at around 3:30 a.m. on Tuesday at south 118 St. and east Knob Hill Blvd. 

Chief Murray said the attack appears to be random, and that Haddock "walked in and started shooting."
