Should be a beetle, it seems to have elytra. Hemipterans that look beetly often have overlapping wings, see the bottom of the bugguide page.

 

Seems like something in the click, firefly, soldier beetle realm based on shape alone, but I am not an expert identifier.

Definitely a beetle, no idea as to the identity though.

Beetle?  Yes.

 

Family Meloidae?

I believe it is Cephaloon lepturides.
