NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) – A man shot and killed two people Monday at a gas station in southern Indiana and held a woman at a restaurant hostage before officers shot and injured him as he headed their way, authorities said.

The man was arrested Monday morning after police opened fire on the vehicle, Indiana State Police Sgt. said Carey Huls. The woman was able to flee the vehicle before it was driven towards officers.

The suspect and woman were taken to hospital with undisclosed injuries.

Earlier Monday, a man and a woman were killed outside the New Albany gas station, across the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky.

Huls said the suspect left in an SUV that was damaged in some way. He then ran into the restaurant and forced a woman there into another vehicle, which he allegedly used to drive towards officers.

No other details were immediately available.
