If I remember correctly he was shot by sheriff deputies when he shot one of the deputies in the head. i do not think there was any govenrment
involvement in this, the CIA did not kill him or anything like that, and if the government wanted him dead they could have done it better and make it
look like an accident, robbery, or a natural death.
Several deputies were outside Cooper's home as they were serving a warrant for aggravated assault and two counts of endangerment. Cooper shot a
deputy in the head and then the rest of the deputies returned fire and killed him.
People who knew him say he was a sob, and that he was hard if not impossible to get along with.
I just think the sheriff department thought that he was dangerous since he was prone to make announcements that could border in threats, they went to
serve an arrest warrant and he decided to shot at a deputy.
