TEMPLE, Texas (AP) - Investigators say a murder suspect being chased by officers fatally shot himself as traffic slowed in a construction area on Interstate 35 in Central Texas.
Temple police say the suspect died at the scene Monday night.
Fort Worth police on Monday were dispatched to a parking lot at Ridgmar Mall on a report of shots fired. Officer Brad Perez says a wounded woman, who was found in a vehicle, died at a hospital. Perez says the shooting appeared to be a domestic-related attack.
Officers from several agencies Monday night pursued a vehicle matching an alert for a murder suspect. Police say the driver was northbound on I-35 in Temple when traffic slowed and he fatally shot himself.
Fort Worth police didn't immediately release names of the victim or the suspect.
