ONEONTA, Ala. (AP) - Authorities have identified a man who died after a two-county shooting spree and police chase in north Alabama.

Coroner Mark Vaughn says 38-year-old Daniel Blackmon of Guntersville was killed in the incident Tuesday.

Vaughn says an autopsy will show whether the man died of gunshots, injuries in a wreck, or both.

Police say Blackmon opened fire on a truck in Marshall County early Tuesday, and authorities soon received reports of a man firing on motorists at an intersection in neighboring Blount County.

At least four people were hurt. Blackmon later wrecked and exchanged gunfire with officers who had been pursuing him, but it’s unclear whether he was struck by police gunfire.

Police say they don’t know what prompted the shooting spree.
