So, did this guy actually die from his injuries? I seen this in the news, and they stated that the man was taken to a hospital where he was being treated.
I do not mean for this to sound bad or anything, I was just wondering, how we could get 2 different stories about the same person, where he lives, and where he dies.
Did he have a reason for robbing the bank and then taking his own life??

Good, I hope it hurt a lot, piece of cr@p. And I hope the inmates in prison will poke at the wound, too.
Just My Opinion

I hope the person survives and has a chance to turn around (his) life.

Give me a break, Fat chance that will happen. Save the taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars and die. Better him than some innocent bystander.
