A man shot himself in the head near the northbound U.S. 95 off-ramp to Craig Road around 4:45 p.m. Sunday.

Police say a boyfriend and girlfriend were driving northbound on U.S. 95 with two small children in the back seat - a 5-year-old and a 5-month-old. The woman was driving.

The man told the woman he was going to kill himself if she was breaking up with him. He then shot himself. 

The woman pulled over to the side of the road and called 911. Medical personnel pronounced the man dead.

Police say the off-ramp will be closed for another hour.
