Man Kills Self Near School As Police Make Traffic Stop

A man kills himself, just as police stop his car in a quiet Tyler neighborhood.  Apparently the end to a prolonged domestic dispute.

It happened around 11 a.m. Monday in the 500 block of Carriage Drive, just a block from Rice Elementary School in south Tyler.

Police say 44-year-old John William Tesseyman was seen breaking into the vehicle of his estranged wife at an insurance agency on Loop 323.  When officers spotted his vehicle, Tesseyman continued driving until pulling over on Carriage Drive and shot himself once in the head.  He died at East Texas Medical Center.

No one else was hurt. Tesseyman had been wanted by police on two other warrants.
