The gun used to kill the Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen appears to match the gun a man used to kill himself when police officers approached him for questioning at an apartment building last week, according to preliminary ballistics tests, police officials said on Wednesday. Chief Snowden said that no casings were found at the scene of Ms. Chasen’s death. NYT

An initial coroner’s report stated , obtained by local station KTTV, said one 9mm bullet was pulled from Chasen’s back in the hospital, and the 64-year-old had been shot multiple times. CBS
A law enforcement official, who was not authorized to speak about the case so asked for anonymity, told The Associated Press that Smith used a revolver to shoot himself. The official did not say what caliber bullets the gun fired but noted it was not a 9 mm weapon. AP
