TOWN OF NEWBOLD - A man killed himself on an Oneida County road early Tuesday morning.

The Oneida County Sheriff's Office tells Newswatch 12, deputies got a call from the Waukesha County Sheriff's Office late Monday night. Family members from southeastern Wisconsin had called them expressing concern for the well being of a family member in Oneida County.

A deputy patrolling near the Rainbow Flowage in Newbold saw the car the man was described to be driving around 2:00 a.m. When that deputy tried to pull the man over, he sped off.

The man led police on a chase along Highway D, at one point showing he had a gun.

He stopped near the intersection of Highway D and Swamp Creek Road and got out of the car. Officers say the man shot himself once. The man died from his self-inflicted wound.

The mans name has not yet been released. The incident is under investigation.
