Man Commits Suicide By Setting Himself on Fire Outside Fur Store
A homeless man doused himself with gasoline and then lit the fuel outside a Portland, Ore. fur store on Wednesday.
Daniel Shaull's father tells The Oregonian his son was mentally ill and tired of living.
While fully engulfed in flames, Daniel (pictured) tried to enter the fur store and was yelling something about the world ending and animals dying.
As onlookers looked on in horror, an officer went to get a fire extinguisher out of the trunk of her patrol car, but she accidentally grabbed a large can of pepper spray used in riot control. )The pepper spray cans are red like a fire extinguisher.)
The fur store has been the site of frequent animal-rights protests in the past.
