Suspect in Beverly Hills Murder Shoots, Kills Himself

12/2/2010 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A suspect in the murder of Ronni Chasen, the Beverly Hills publicist who was murdered on the streets of Beverly Hills, shot himself dead Wednesday after cops confronted him.

Ronni Chasen
The suspect -- known as Harold -- had been under surveillance for some time by the Beverly Hills Police Department, according to the Los Angeles Times.

He was living at the Harvey Apartments in Hollywood, which is where cops found him late Wednesday. With search warrant in hand, cops told Harold to raise his hands.  Harold refused, and shot himself in the head.  He died at the scene.

It's unclear if cops suspected Harold was the shooter or an accomplice. According to The Times, Harold had told a neighbor he was supposed to be getting $10,000 soon.

A neighbor told KABC-TV Harold bragged that he "offed her" and got paid for it.



Harold had allegedly served prison time for firearms and drug violations.

my opinion    

He was mentally unstable I do NOT believe he was the shooter...it has been reported on local L.A. news that this was a professional hit a professional hit man will NOT be bragging to any and everyone that he killed someone and was going to be paid $10,000 it doesn't make since hopefully they will capture the true killer.


RIP Ronnie

You conspiracy theory people (or should I say person posting under at least 3 different names) need to slow down with your typing. Try using some proper grammar and punctuation if you really want people to understand what you are talking about, LOL.

Never heard of any hit man bragging on the street to neighbors that he murdered someone and then wait around for the police to get him!
