A man went on a shooting spree across two Texas counties Sunday morning, killing a woman and injuring five other people — one of them a sheriff — before dying in a shootout with law enforcement, authorities said. At least nine state and local agencies chased the man — a 23-year-old North Carolina resident whose name wasn't released because his family hadn't been notified — for almost two hours, as he opened fire from his pickup truck on random cars across McCulloch and Concho counties, near San Angelo in central Texas, according to NBC News. He was armed with an assault-style rifle, a handgun and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. The shooter eventually died in a gunfire exchange with a state trooper and a game warden on a highway north of the town of Eden, the state Department of Public Safety said.
