A man Tucson police say fled from a deadly motorcycle crash July 29 killed himself Wednesday afternoon during a standoff with law enforcement on Tucson's northwest side.
Jason Patty, 42, refused to come out of a house when U.S. Marshals, Tucson SWAT officers and Pima County Sheriff's deputies went to a residence Wednesday afternoon to arrest him, officials said.
After attempts to get him to come out failed, a lone gunshot was heard inside the home in the 5800 block of North Edenbrook Lane, near North La Cholla Boulevard and West River Road.
SWAT officers used a robot to enter the home, where Patty was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, authorities said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
On July 29, police say Patty was driving a motorcycle with a passenger, Renee Doty, 37, as it crashed into a stalled Mercedes on North Stone Avenue near East Limberlost Drive.
Police said Patty fled before they arrived.
Doty was taken to a hospital where she died on July 30.
Authorities obtained a felony arrest warrant for Patty on Aug. 15.
