The medical examiner thinks the death of a motorist in Lynchburg Saturday night was "probably" a suicide.
Police pulled John Lawrence Elrod over... suspecting Elrod was driving drunk with two children in the car who were NOT wearing seat belts.
As officers tried to forceably remove the 31- year old man from the car, Elrod grabbed a handgun, put it to his own head and the gun went off.
Doctor William Masello said today that the bullet wound was "consistent with a self-inflicted" injury.
He says "it sounds like suicide," though Doctor Masello says he'll wait for the police report before making an official ruling on the cause of death.
