Love triangle spirals into wild car-chase shooting, with one dead

iStock/Thinkstock(DEARBORN, Mich.) -- A heart-pounding car chase in Michigan involving a love triangle and gunfire from a moving car ended with the alleged shooter’s suicide, according to ABC Detroit affiliate WXYZ-TV. Police dashcam video of the May 9 incident released by the Dearborn Police Department shows one driver firing at another, with pursuing officers ramming their cruiser into the back of the shooter’s vehicle. “Tactical training kicked in,” Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad told WXYZ-TV. “We can never come up with every scenario, but our officers trained well enough to think on their feet.” Dearborn police told the station that it all started at an unnamed woman’s home in Melvindale, Michigan, where her ex-boyfriend Ruben Salinas came to confront her new boyfriend. When Salinas allegedly took out a gun, the boyfriend ran to his truck and drove off. Salinas followed him in his car, shooting at the victim’s truck, WXYZ-TV reported. Police reportedly began tailing the suspect after the other driver called 911. The chase ended at Beaumont Oakwood Hospital in nearby Dearborn, where the suspect reportedly shot himself. The victim was not seriously injured, according to WXYZ-TV, and police later found an AR-15 rifle in Salinas’ car. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Severe weather expected to last through weekend

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- Threats of severe weather remain Friday -- especially in Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska -- as more than 160 reports of damaging storms were filed on Thursday throughout the U.S. Winds in Nebraska almost reached 80 mph, and winds exceeded 60 mph in North Carolina and Virginia. The storm pattern on Friday and Saturday is continuing from the Plains all the way to the Northeast. On Saturday, a low-pressure system will move east from the Plains into the Midwest and Northeast, bringing with it a higher risk of damaging winds, hail or even tornadoes. In addition to storms, a stationary frontal boundary is expected to deliver more rain over this wide area, from the Rockies all the way to the Northeast. Some areas could see between 3 and 4 inches of rain over the weekend, with flooding possible in the northern Rockies and Pacific Northwest, partially due to snowmelt. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
