Police: Man runs into traffic after allegedly killing mom

A Gwinnett County man is accused of killing his own mother and then trying to harm himself.

Sunday night around 8:15 p.m., drivers called police after seeing a man, later identified by police as 45-year-old Otto Kim, running in traffic on Buford Highway near Suwanee Creek Road. They said he was throwing his body into passing cars, appearing to want to get hit.

When officers arrived the man told them he had stabbed his mother and that she could be found in a nearby home on Chelsea Falls Lane in unincorporated Suwanee. Police went to the house and located 81-year-old Myung Kim suffering from injuries to her face.  Paramedics rushed the woman to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.
