He almost certainly shot himself. There are some reports suggesting that he had also taken cyanide (as had his new wife, Eva Braun).

The Russians were only a few hundred yards away, and they had a bit of a reputation for brutality. He would undoubtedly have suffered a horrible death if they had caught him alive. Given the 20 million Russians, 6 million Jews, 200,000 other "lesser beings" that died as a consequence of Hitler's and his henchmen's activities, it is not difficult to see why everyone wanted to inflict a really unpleasant end on him.
