The man who went on a rampage in an armored bulldozer is found dead.

Muffler shop owner Marvin Heemeyer tore through at least a dozen buildings Friday afternoon in the town of Granby including the city hall and library.

Police say they found Heemeyer this morning, dead after shooting himself.

Heemeyer modified the D-9 caterpillar bulldozer with armor said to be as thick as 12 inches.

Officials say the rampage was inspired by Heemeyer's anger over zoning restrictions around his shop.
