Murder Suspect Found Dead In Car Following Pursuit

Traffic is getting back to normal on Interstate 80 east of Truckee following a murder, chase and possible suicide spanning two counties.

It started earlier today when Lincoln police were called to a home for reports of gunshots.

Officers say they found the body of a woman in the garage with gunshot wounds to the torso.

The Placer County District Attorney's Office then identified a possible suspect.

His vehicle was spotted traveling eastbound on I-80 and was disabled using spike strips.

Nevada County officers approached the vehicle and found the driver with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.
