PIKE COUNTY, Miss. (WJTV) – A man wanted for a double homicide in Texas is chased into Pike County, Mississippi.
Texas authorities say Randall Lee Burrows shot and killed two 60-year-olds from Austin on Wednesday night. Another woman is in critical condition in the hospital.
Officials say it appears to have started as a fight over business.
A tag reader picked up the Texas tag on Burrows’ Ford Escape in Mississippi around 4:30 Friday afternoon.
Troopers tried to stop Burrows in Pike County, but he tried to get away and led them on a chase on I-55.
The chase ended when Burrows crashed his car in a field, got out of the car, and shot himself in the head.
Law enforcement is not aware of any connections he had to Mississippi.
