MACY, Neb. (AP) - A man suspected in a South Dakota shooting has died after being pursued by officers into Nebraska.

Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins said Monday that 38-year-old Eric Michael Johnson, of Elk Point, South Dakota, shot and killed himself after his pickup was stopped north of Macy on Saturday night.

South Dakota authorities say a woman was shot about 7:30 p.m. Saturday along Interstate 29 in North Sioux City, South Dakota. The suspect fled north on I-29 and then turned around. He raced south into Iowa and eventually into Nebraska, where he was headed south on U.S. Highway 75 until his pickup was stopped by officers who used stop sticks to puncture the truck’s tires.

The wounded woman is expected to survive her injuries. Her name hasn’t been released.
