A 23-year-old murder suspect shot himself to death near Westy Storage Center in North Elmsford, N.Y., last night when police approached the cab he was in. Local officers were assisting Hackensack, N.J., police in apprehending the man for whom an arrest warrant had been issued for allegedly stabbing his girlfriend last month.
Police tracked the suspect using his cell phone. When they stopped the cab and ordered the occupants to get out, the suspect shot himself with a semiautomatic handgun and died on the scene.
The suspect is believed to be rapper Darnell "King Tut" Brittingham, whose girlfriend was stabbed seven times in her Hackensack apartment on Feb. 12. Brittingham was suspected of stabbing the woman two days after being bailed out of the Bergen County jail for possession of drugs.
