SANDY, Utah (AP) — Authorities say a man suspected of shooting and killing another man is dead after crashing his car into a Utah elementary school.

The Unified Police Department of Greater Salt Lake says the man was driving a black Jeep Wrangler on Wednesday night and shot and killed another man at a gas station.

Authorities say he then led police on a car chase that ended when his Jeep rolled and crashed into a fence at Peruvian Elementary School in Sandy.

Police discovered that the man had a self-inflicted gunshot wound and was dead when they approached the crash. Police are unsure if the driver shot himself before or after crashing the vehicle.

Investigators are still working to determine if the victim and the shooter knew each other. Neither have been identified.
