An early morning shooting in Dallas leads to a police chase in Kaufman County.

At around 2:00 am Sunday morning, Dallas Police responded to shots fired at a house on Ravenview Road, just east of the I-20 and 175 interchange.

A woman was injured by the gunfire and transported to Baylor Hospital.

SWAT teams were dispatched, because it was believed that the suspect had barricaded themselves inside the home, but a search turned up nothing.

Later, Kaufman County Sherriff deputies located the suspect in a vehicle on 175, and gave pursuit until they were able to deploy spike strips to stop the vehicle.

When deputies approached that vehicle, they found the suspect dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

That individual's identity has not been released.
