The reason he killed himself was becuase he felt like no one cared about him, he felt like johnny was the only one that did. he did kill himself thats why he robbed the convenient store, so that the cops would kill him

Johnny was an important existence in Dally's life. Dally loved and cared for Johnny a lot, so it was a huge blow to him when Johnny died. He was devastated. Dally's tough and isn't swayed very easily, so when he truly cares about someone, he'll do his all for them. Johnny was one of these people. When he died, Dally ran out and purposely got caught trying to steal so that he could get killed by the cops. He waved a gun that wasn't loaded around, and the police, not knowing that it didn't have any bullets, killed him

He didn't kill himself intentionally, but he did kill himself by holding up the unloaded gun to the policemen if you read the book you would find out more about this part of the movie.

Dally didn't commit suicide he had a planned death. As Kiwii32 explained that he did mean to die but he didn't kill himself. Dally had a deep connection to Johnny but when Johnny passed away Dally had no one that really understood him like johnny. So he broke and planned to die

Johnny was the only thing Dally truly, deeply loved. The reason he loved Johnny so much was because Johnny was everything Dally couldn't be. Johnny felt things deeper (like Ponyboy) than the other greasers and realized that there was good in the world. Dally then felt like it was his purpose to save Johnny's "innocence" (his emotions,thoughts etc.) from the cruel things they had to endure. When he failed at this, his guilt took over and he then killed himself (by the hand of another). Dally also (obviously) loved him like a brother.
