Driver dead of apparent suicide after short police pursuit

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 37-year-old man who was a person of interest in a criminal case in Missouri died of an apparent self-inflicted injury during a standoff with San Diego police early Friday, authorities said.

Alan D. Lovelace Jr. of Blue Springs, Mo., was pronounced dead in the 900 block of San Luis Rey Place just before 1:30 a.m., according to the San Diego County Medical Examiner's Office.

More than a half-hour earlier, San Diego police acting on a tip from the Blue Springs Missouri Police gave chase to Lovelace through the Mission Beach area, the Medical Examiner's Office reported in a statement.

A lengthy vehicle pursuit ended along the east terminal of San Luis Rey Place and a standoff ensued. Lovelace remained in his vehicle until police eventually made a tactical entry into the vehicle, finding the suspect dead, the Medical Examiner's Office reported.

According to KCTV 5 News in Kansas City, Mo., Lovelace was suspected of shooting his estranged girlfriend in the head as she left work in Grain Valley, Mo., last Friday. The woman, identified as 33-year-old Amie Wieland, remained hospitalized Friday.

Blue Springs police traced Lovelace to San Diego via his cellphone usage, according to the news station, which quoted police as saying Lovelace shot and killed himself with a small-caliber handgun.
