CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — The death of a 27-year-old man police fatally shot in St. Thomas Township on June 23 could be described as "suicide by cop," according to a press release Franklin County District Attorney Matthew Fogal issued Tuesday.

Fogal said police found a four-page suicide note and handwritten "Last Will & Testiment (sic)" in the pickup truck where troopers initially found Adam Schillinger of Saugerties, N.Y.

In the suicide note, Schillinger indicated that he is "taking the easy way out, but I'm gonna go out with a bang. I'm not just gonna kill myself, I'm gonna go a lil crazy before I do it."
