Man who shot at Missouri trooper, 2 other drivers identified
CAMERON, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri State Highway Patrol says a man who shot at a trooper and two people in other vehicles along an interstate died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The St. Joseph News-Press reports the patrol identified the man who died after the shootings on Friday as 26-year-old Julian Santiago-Cruz of Guadalupe Nuevo Leon, Mexico.
Highway Patrol spokesman Jake Angle says it’s unclear why Santiago-Cruz fired at the other cars and the trooper along Interstate 35 near Cameron on Friday.
The chase ended when the suspect’s car crashed.
The trooper was not injured. The other two victims, who were in separate cars, suffered injuries that were not life threatening.
The patrol’s Drug and Crime Control division continues to investigate the case.
