FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) – Four people are dead in South Florida following a shooting and high-speed chase.
Miami-Dade police report that 48-year-old Antonio Feliu shot his former girlfriend and her adult daughter Wednesday morning. Police say 51-year-old Vivian Gallego Martinez died at the scene, while 28-year-old Anabel Benitez died at a nearby trauma center.
Feliu had already fled by the time police arrived, but officers called in a description of his vehicle to initiate a pursuit. An MDPD helicopter followed Feliu’s SUV into rural southwestern Broward County, where he eventually crashed into another vehicle at an intersection.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office reports that 48-year-old Maritza Medina was ejected from her vehicle and died at the scene. As deputies approached Feliu’s SUV, shots were fired and deputies retreated. SWAT teams then surrounded Feliu’s vehicle to take him into custody, but he was already dead.
