Deputy Shooting Suspect Dies In Hospital

DECATUR, Texas (AP) - A medical examiner's office spokesman confirmed that the man who shot a Montague Co. Sheriff's deputy and led police in a high-speed chase has died.

Tarrant County Medical Examiner's spokesman Roger Metcalf said a man police believe is 28-year-old Evan Spencer Ebel has died and an autopsy has begun. Metcalf said the man's identity still must be officially confirmed through fingerprint analysis.

Ebel shot 27-year-old, Sheriff Deputy James Boyd during a routine Traffic stop on Hwy 287 in Bowie. He then led Texas deputies on a 100-mph car chase Thursday that ended when he crashed into a semi and opened fire. His pursuers then gunned him down.
 
Colorado police have been trying to determine whether Ebel is linked to killing Nathan Leon, a Colorado pizza deliveryman and Tom Clements at his home in Monument, near Colorado Springs.
