Fort Worth, TX – A man wanted for two murders was arrested on Wednesday following a chaotic chase leaving two people dead.
According to police, the man tried to fled the authorities when he initially stabbed one person and stole their pickup truck.
The man then drove the truck into a building, killing one man, and then hit and killed a woman sitting at a bus stop. He then carjacked someone else.
The pursuit lasted for a few hours and resulted with a total of two dead and one person injured. Police didn’t reveal the identities of those who died in the chase.
Police also didn’t release the identity of the suspect immediately.
There are still many unanswered questions about the motive with the initial stabbing incident that left one person injured.
The man leaned out his window and talked with police who were telling him to surrender. They used spike strips to flatten some tires, but he was defiant.
This neighborhood standoff went on for about an hour.
“I saw the truck speeding right around the corner, smoke coming out of the tires because he was quite flat,” said neighbor Sergio Rodriguez.
SWAT teams used two armored trucks to box the double murder suspect in. One pushed the pickup into the other one. They shot tear gas through the truck’s windows.
After a few minutes, he finally came out and surrendered and was taken into custody by the SWAT team members.
The several-hour-long incident started Wednesday morning when a victim called 911 to report that he had been stabbed and the suspect stole his pickup truck. The stabbing took place on Las Vegas Trail. The stabbing victim survived, but authorities didn’t provide details about his injuries and condition.
People in the neighborhood where the chase ended say they hardly ever see or hear about crime happening in their community.
Police have not identified the suspect is or what charges he is facing.
