HOLLAND (WKZO) -- A man suspected of robbing the Macatawa Bank in Holland on Tuesday has died at a hospital in Grand Rapids.

Apparently he did not want to go to jail. The 20-year-old suspect shot himself in the head yesterday rather than be arrested as police pulled over a car he was riding in, at the entrance to a trailer park.

The three other people in the vehicle, shaken and upset, got out and cooperated with police, while they rushed to try and save the suspect, identified as Edgar Martinez.
