Police say a Dunbar man fatally shot himself with his own gun during a struggle with officers.

Humphreys says the officers struggled with Wilcox and he pulled out a handgun. During the struggle, Wilcox shot himself with the gun. He was taken to a Charleston hospital where he later died.
The Kanawha Bureau of Investigation is investigating the incident.
