The medical examiner says it was a self inflicted gunshot wound, NOT a police bullet that apparently killed Leonard Jenkins, a suspected drunk driver.
Sheriff's officials say Jenkins shot Deputy Ernest Spiva twice in the chest, hitting his bulletproof vest before shooting himself.
Another officer returned fire when Jenkins began shooting at Spiva.
