A man apparently shot himself to death after having stolen a car at gunpoint near Fillmore late Sunday, the Millard County Sheriff's Department says.

Sheriff's dispatcher Fred Cahoon said the man, whose identity was withheld pending notification of kin, apparently stole the car just inside the Millard-Sevier county line.He then apparently fled in the car and was found dead inside the vehicle, on I-70 near Richfield, about 20 miles southeast of Fillmore.

The Sevier County Sheriff's Department said little detail on the incident was available and referred questions to the Richfield office of the Utah Highway Patrol.
