LITTLEFIELD, TX (KCBD) -

The Lamb County Leader-News reports that Ramon Chavira, a 34-year-old man from Lubbock, is believed to have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound Monday night in Littlefield.

The Lamb County Sheriff's Department responded to a report of a drive-by shooting in Sudan a little after 6 p.m.

The complainant, a 28-year-old man from Sudan, said Chavira had been chasing him and using his vehicle to ram him.

The complainant chased Chavira but lost him in Sudan. Later, he told police that Chavira came back and fired a shot, hitting his car.

Sheriff’s deputies were told that Chavira was headed down Highway 84 back towards Lubbock in his van.

Littlefield police saw the van drive through town, but when they initiated a traffic stop, the vehicle went off the roadway and came to a stop along Phelps Avenue and Highway 84.

Chavira was found slumped over and unresponsive in the vehicle, suffering from a gunshot wound to the top of his stomach.

The pathologist who performed the autopsy believes the wound was self-inflicted, and that Chavira would have been unconscious within a minute or two of firing.

    A North Korean mid-range ballistic missile test-fire apparently failed Saturday, South Korea and the United States said, the third such flop just this month but a clear message of defiance as a U.S. supercarrier conducts tests in nearby waters.
