HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- The Henrico man who apparently shot and killed himself inside a Walgreens pharmacy was identified by police as 44-year-old Gary Michael Haynes.

Police were called to the Walgreens on South Laburnum Avenue at about 5:20 p.m. Tuesday to investigate a robbery in progress.

"Officers encountered the suspect, who discharged a weapon while he was in the business. All patrons and employees were able to safely leave the business," a Henrico Police spokesman said.
