HOUSTON (CBS Houston) According to officials, a man went on an early morning shooting spree Sunday across two Texas counties killing one woman and injuring five other people, one of them the Concho County sheriff. The man later died in the shootout with law enforcement.

The man was chased by at least nine state and local agencies.

Reports indicate that the 23-year-old North Carolina resident whose name wasn’t released at the time of this report, opened fire from his pickup truck on random cars across McCulloch and Concho counties, near San Angelo in central Texas.

Additional reports state that 41-year-old Alicia Torres from Eola, Texas, was fatally shot during the shooting spree. Just after 6 a.m., she was found in her car.

In addition to the sheriff being among the injured, two of the injured also include the sister-in-law of Bangs Police Chief Troy Grusendorf and her husband. Both were shot outside a convenience store in Brady, Texas where, his sister-in-law is reportedly employed.

The first shooting was reported about 4:30 a.m. when the man opened fire on a vehicle near Eden. Shortly after, Grusendorf’s relatives were shot, treated at a hospital and then released.

The man fired at another vehicle at about 5:30 a.m., injuring a fourth victim who also was treated and released.

The man eventually died in a gunfire exchange with a state trooper and a game warden on a highway north of the town of Eden.

After the shootout, officials made the discovery that the man had been armed with an assault-style rifle, a handgun and several hundred rounds of ammunition.
