SAN DIEGO -- A 19-year-old man suspected of robbing a La Jolla pharmacy at gunpoint was found dead hours later after apparently committing suicide by ingesting the stolen drugs, police said Saturday. The CVS Pharmacy was robbed late Friday morning by a gunman wearing a white mask with a thin mustache, akin to the Guy Fawkes masks worn by protesters in the Occupy movement. Later Friday, the man's family became concerned after not hearing from him. A neighbor found him unconscious and notified police.

In the wake of Friday's massacre at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater, law enforcement officials familiar with the investigation say the gunman must have had a substantial amount of target practice before the shootings. They based their assessment on what they call the gunman's “unusually high” hit rate during the attack in the theater. Twelve people were killed, and 58 were injured. The gunman used -- perhaps most notably -- an AR-15 assault-style rifle with a magazine that could hold as many as 100 rounds.
