Man commits suicide after leading police on chase

KILLEEN, TX (KXXV) - A 37-year-old man committed suicide after leading police on a chase following a traffic stop Tuesday night in Killeen.

Police report an officer stopped a motorcycle for a traffic violation Tuesday night at 11:15 p.m. The rider pulled into the parking lot of the Texas Thrift Store at Veteran's Memorial Blvd. and S. W.S. Young Dr.

The officer got out of his vehicle and went to speak with the rider after seeing him get off the motorcycle, when the man ran away. The officer chased after the man, who ran west across S. W.S. Young Dr. into a fielded area, and continued to tell the fleeing man to stop.

Police report the man stopped suddenly, turned toward the officer, and began "making repeated motions across the front of his neck."

The officer realized the fleeing man was bleeding, and used a stun gun on him to get him to stop injuring himself. The man dropped a sharp object after the officer used the stun gun.

The officer called EMS and tried to give aid to the man, but the man reportedly resisted the officer's attempts to help. Other officers responded and helped until paramedics could arrive.

The man, identified as Jackie Lee Brollier III, was taken to Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead at 12:58 a.m.

An autopsy was ordered for Brollier's body. The preliminary results show the cause of death as suicide by an "incised wound of neck." Authorities are still awaiting final autopsy results.
