A North Idaho man shot himself Monday evening after breaking into his ex-wife's Post Falls apartment and attempting to kill himself in front of her, her friend and four children. The incident began about 4:30 p.m. when the 35-year-old man called his ex-wife threatening to kill himself at her home at the Ross Point Apartments off Second Avenue. Post Falls Police were unable to locate him at that time, said Lt. Pat Knight. Less than two hours later, the man made good on his promise, shooting himself in the head inside the apartment after phoning his ex-wife about 30 times in seven minutes, Knight said/Amy Cannata, Spokesman-Review.
