Chase originates in Dallas, spans several counties
KAUFMAN COUNTY–A Dallas male suspect in a domestic shooting in southeast Dallas led deputies on a high-speed chase in the early morning hours Sunday.
The unidentified man shot a woman multiple times in the 12300 block of Ravenview Road in Dallas. She was transported by private vehicle to Baylor Medical Center in Dallas in critical condition, somewhere around 2 a.m., according to reports.
Kaufman County Sheriff’s Office deputies located the suspect vehicle on U.S. Highway 175 and began a chase which ended near Jiba Road, just east of Kaufman, where deputies employed spike strips to stop the vehicle.
The highway was closed to traffic in both directions as a standoff ensued. Upon approaching the vehicle, deputies discovered the suspect deceased of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Both shooting incidents remain under investigation. Texas Rangers are investigating the suspect’s death.
