Man Shoots Ex-Boyfriend at Jamba Juice and Later Shoots Himself at Hospital

An angry lover tried to kidnap and kill his ex-boyfriend from a local Jamba Juice, and later shot himself at a hospital. 

The 28-year-old suspect (police have not released any names) had been arrested last month and was in court earlier that day, Phoenix PD spokesman Trent Crump says. Cops picked the man up on charges of domestic violence, stalking, criminal damage, threatening and intimidating after he had allegedly damaged the suspect's car and filled it with pool cleaning chemicals, among other things. All of this, and a restraining order, landed the suspect earlier that day in court.
