35-year-old Robert Allain died at 12:10 a.m. Sunday morning at Providence Hospital. He shot himself following a disturbance with his fiance and a brief police pursuit.

Original Story

An Anchorage man attempted suicide shortly after he showed up at the residence of an ex-girlfriend with a gun and led police on a pursuit, according to police.

Just before 4 a.m. Saturday, police received a call from a woman who claimed that her fiance, Robert Allain, threatened her with a gun.

Police put out a call for officers to search for a vehicle driven by Allain, and officers tracked him down near Dimond Boulevard and Victor Road within a few minutes.

The man allegedly refused to stop when officers activated their lights and sirens and attempted to stop the vehicle.

The pursuit lasted approximately four minutes on Minnesota Drive and ended when he crashed his vehicle in the area of Klatt Road and C Street.

“As officers approached his door, Allain pulled a firearm,” said APD spokesperson Anita Shell. “It was a handgun, and he fired a single shot at his own head.”

He was transported to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries, for which he was still being treated Saturday afternoon. No one else was injured.

Shell said charges had not been filed.

Editor's Note: This story has been corrected to reflect that the woman was Allain's fiance -- not his girlfriend, as originally reported by the Anchorage Police Department.
