In brief: Probably not

The first signs of suicidal or homicidal behavior tend to be either depression or a general lack of concern for the well-being of others.
While someone that impulsive may make a decision the harm themselves or others, we are more interested in suicidal or homicidal thoughts as a precursor to such behavior.
