COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. (AP) Colorado Springs police say the
man who killed four people at New Life Church in Colorado Springs
and the Youth With A Mission training center in Arvada on Sunday
died of a self-inflicted shotgun wound.

The El Paso County coroner has ruled the death of 24-year-old
Matthew Murray a suicide. Results of an autopsy show Murray was struck multiple times by a security officer at New Life Church, but died after firing a single shot at himself. Murray was shot by volunteer security guard Jeanne Assam.

Investigators suggested yesterday that Murray may have died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, though police and church leaders credited Assam's bravery with averting a greater tragedy.
