Suspect in nine bank robberies kills himself after one last holdup in Goleta, authorities say

Authorities say a man suspected in multiple bank robberies throughout California killed himself just hours after holding up one last bank.

Santa Barbara County sheriff’s officials say a man flashed a gun and demanded cash from a teller at a bank in Goleta on Friday. A short time later, the man locked himself inside the bathroom of a nearby nail salon. Officials say police evacuated the business and later found Keith David Goodwin dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.

A sheriff’s statement says the 41-year-old Fresno man was suspected of robbing at least nine banks over the past two months.
