A 22-year-old man fatally shot himself in the head after a short chase by sheriff's deputies in an unincorporated area just east of Watts, Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies said Saturday.

Darin Cole had been driving recklessly and did not yield when deputies, suspecting the driver was under the influence, attempted to pull him over just before 8 a.m. Saturday, said deputy Frank LaPiana.
