Police: Woman called 911 after letting killer borrow phone
SEATTLE (AP) — Police say they located the suspect in the random killing of three people at a convenience store in Yakima, Washington, after he borrowed a stranger’s cell phone to call his mother and confess to what he had done. Yakima Police Chief Matt Murray said the suspect, Jarid Haddock, shot and killed himself behind some warehouses as officers approached on Tuesday afternoon. Police had surrounded his family’s home after the early morning convenience store killings, but he wasn’t there. Instead, police say, the 21-year-old had gone to an area near a Target store in the city, borrowed a woman’s phone and used it to call his mother. The woman overheard the conversation and called 911.
