MOUNTAIN HOME, AR - A registered sex offender shot and killed himself at a Mountain Home pawn shop where the man used a gun that was on display at the store.

Police say 49-year-old Samuel Gray took a shotgun off a shelf at Mountain Home Pawn & Gun on Saturday morning and stepped outside with the weapon.  Then he loaded the gun and shot himself.

Mountain Home Police Chief Carry Manuel says Gray brought ammunition to the store, which he used to load the gun.

Gray was before a judge in February for a failure to register as a sex offender.  Officials say Gray had to be removed from the courtroom after he argued with the judge. 

Gray was pronounced dead at the store.
