Police: Man kills self on I-95 after fatal shooting at motel

Police say a Spotsylvania County man killed himself on Interstate 95 after he fatally shot another man at a motel in Caroline County.

Police tell multiple media outlets that 36-year-old Todd T. Houck killed 36-year-old Jeremy Gift in a room at the Relax Inn in Bowling Green on Tuesday morning. Houck then abducted a woman from the room.

County sheriff's deputies responding to the shooting saw an SUV fleeing and pursued it. The chase went through Bowling Green and then onto I-95 in Spotsylvania. Police say the SUV stopped after it rammed a police cruiser, and Houck then shot himself.

The woman was in the SUV. She wasn't injured. Her name hasn't been released.
