JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - Jonesboro police say a man has killed a teenager he dated before fleeing her home and killing himself.

Lt. Stephen McDaniel says 17-year-old Diamond Ebron was found dead Tuesday from “apparent gunshot wounds.” Witnesses told police 26-year-old Kenneth Thomas shot Ebron with a handgun before driving away.

A Craighead County deputy pulled Thomas over after the shooting. The deputy says he heard a single gunshot from the vehicle and found Thomas dead inside.

Police say Ebron was trying to distance herself from Thomas and was leaving town when she was shot.

McDaniel says police believe a 9 mm handgun found in the car was used in Ebron’s shooting.
