SULTAN KUDARAT --- A police major killed himself Friday using his service pistol while inside a car in Bagumbayan town in this province.

Major Kristian Ace Sularte, assigned at the Police Regional Office-11, was found dead on the driver’s seat of his silver Mitsubishi Mirage.

Probers found his service pistol beside him and recovered a spent bullet shell inside the vehicle, parked at his family’s yard in Purok Osmeña in Barangay Poblacion, Bagumbayan.

Responding probers from the Bagumbayan municipal police and relatives of Sularte are convinced that he shot himself in the head using a handgun.

Even so, investigators are still trying to determine if there was foul play in the incident.

Neighbors heard a dull thud before they discovered that Sularte had shot himself inside his tinted car, its window shields raised and doors closed.  

Sularte was with PRO-12 covering central Mindanao prior to his assignment in PRO-11 in Davao City.
