WEST MONROE- West Monroe police say they believe that family problems sparked a crime spree that ended with the gunman man killing himself in Oklahoma.

Detective Sgt. Tim Zeigler tells The News-Star that until Friday, 26-year-old Stephen "Lane" Salsbury's only criminal record was three seat belt violations. He didn't describe the family problems.

Police says Salsbury first broke into an apartment, looking for his wife's ex-husband, then stole a car, held up a bank, and shot and killed 58-year-old Garland E. Henley at random in a grocery store parking lot.

As he fled Louisiana, Salsbury kidnapped an off-duty Webster Parish sheriff's dispatcher. Oklahoma City Police Sgt. Gary Knight says he was driving her SUV when he called 911 to say where he was, and shot himself in the head after officers arrived.
