Nebraska State Patrol spokeswoman Deb Collins said Sunday that the man shot and killed himself after his pickup was stopped north of Macy on Saturday night. His name hasn't been released.

South Dakota authorities say a woman was shot about 7:30 p.m. Saturday along Interstate 29 in North Sioux City, South Dakota. The suspect fled north on I-29 and then turned around. He raced south into Iowa and eventually into Nebraska, where he was headed south on U.S. Highway 75 until his pickup was stopped by officers who used stop sticks to puncture the truck's tires.

The wounded woman is expected to survive her injuries. Her name hasn't been released.
