A man who shot himself in the head outside the Eden Prairie police station before he was to be questioned in the disappearance of a 24-year-old woman has died.

According to an Eden Prairie news release Saturday morning, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner confirmed the death of 24-year-old David Roe.

Mandy Marie Matula was reported missing Thursday morning after she didn't show up for work. Police believe she was with Roe, of Victoria, in Miller Park early Thursday.

Roe had agreed to speak with police later Thursday. Police say the two had a romantic relationship previously, but were not currently dating.

Officers cordoned off an area near Miller Park Saturday where they had found an unfired piece of ammunition.

Police asked anyone with information on Matula's whereabouts to call them.
