Reynolds allegedly fled to the convenience store and assaulted two people inside, Cooper said. They escaped, Cooper said, and Reynolds remained inside.

After trying to negotiate with Reynolds with no response, authorities fired tear gas into the store, Cooper said. Police found his body inside a room within the store {snip}
