A man abducted his 9-month-old son from the mother's home, then shot and killed the baby and himself as police closed in, authorities said.
Police tracked Randall King, 46, through three counties Thursday night and used spikes to puncture his vehicle's tires nearly 100 miles from the baby's home in Evarts in eastern Kentucky.
Police found the bodies of King and his son, Landon, inside the SUV after it crashed. The baby had been shot three times.
Kentucky State Police Trooper Scott Hopkins said police tried to stop the vehicle before it crashed but were unsuccessful. Five cruisers followed the vehicle in a chase that never exceeded 60 mph, police said. After the deflation devices were used, the SUV traveled about another mile before running off the road.
Hopkins said investigators believe King shot the baby and himself before the crash.
