PLYMOUTH â An unidentified woman shot herself this morning in the parking lot of the Plymouth Martin's Supermarket.
Mike Smith was leaving the store around 9:30 a.m. when he noticed what looked like a woman sleeping in her car. He then noticed that she had a gun propped between her legs pointing at herself.
