MAR VISTA (CBSLA) — A possible shooting suspect turned the gun on himself during a barricade situation Sunday at a motel in Mar Vista, according to police.

Los Angeles police Officer Mike Lopez of the Media Relations division says one shooting victim has been taken to the hospital.

The suspect fled to the Mar Vista area from Culver City. It was unclear why the man holed up inside the Rodeway Inn.

The initial shooting call was reported around 5 a.m. on Flower Court west of Lincoln Boulevard.

A subsequent investigation led police to the area of Inglewood and West Washington boulevards, where the suspect kept police at bay.

After several hours, police entered the room where the man had barricaded himself and found him dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
