BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Miami businessman who was trying to reconcile with his former girlfriend shot her before leading police on a 40-mile chase down Interstate 95 and fatally shooting himself.

The incident unraveled on Sunday, beginning at a townhome where 35-year-old Jyrece McClendon lives and ending along a road in Miami-Dade County.

McClendon is expected to survive her injuries. But Boynton Beach police say 44-year-old Samori Kwame Walden shot himself and crashed his car.

Police say a neighbor heard shots Sunday morning and called 911. Walden was leaving as police arrived. He drove onto nearby I-95 and headed south.

A number of law enforcement agencies worked together as the chase continued south. The couple had apparently broken up several months ago.
