FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Investigators say a Fort Worth murder suspect who fatally shot himself while being chased by officers was the husband of the woman he was suspected of killing.

David Bailey fatally shot himself as traffic slowed in a construction area on Interstate 35 in Central Texas. Fort Worth police confirmed on Thursday that the 45-year-old man was their suspect in the Monday fatal shooting of 43-year-old Leslie Bailey in the parking lot at Ridgmar Mall.

Officers from several agencies Monday night pursued a vehicle matching an alert for a murder suspect. Police say Bailey was northbound on I-35 in Temple when traffic slowed and he fatally shot himself.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram (https://bit.ly/2q4SMQU) reports the two were going through a divorce and the woman had a protective order against her husband.
