A Texas man died from his injuries Monday one day after being handcuffed in the back of a police car and managing to pull out a gun from his waistband to shoot himself.

(FOX)- Zachary Khabir Anam, 19, died at University Medical Center-Brackenridge, Austin police said in a statement.

Anam was taken into police custody Sunday at the Barton Creek Square shopping mall at around noon. He had been detained on suspicion of shoplifting and carrying a controlled substance.

Interim police Chief Brian Manley said Anam was handcuffed and placed in the back seat of a patrol for the ride to police headquarters.

During the ride over, Anam managed to reach for his weapon on the right side of his pants. He pointed the weapon at his own head with threats to shoot himself, Manley added.

The police officer who was driving stopped the car and ordered Anam to drop the weapon. The unidentified officer and Anam went back and forth with threats and demands for about six minutes when Anam turned the gun on himself, Manley said. The ordeal was recorded on the dashboard camera.
