— A Boise, Idaho man committed suicide after being stopped for a traffic violation Thursday afternoon about two miles east of here on Interstate 82.

James D. Mosley, 54, was pronounced dead at the scene at Milepost 60.

The Washington State Patrol said Mosley was traveling eastbound when he was stopped. He got out of the vehicle, a 2004 Buick Century, with a gun in his hand, walked to the front of the car and shot himself.

The patrol continues to investigate, but it had no further information late Monday afternoon.
