BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Authorities in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on Monday released the identities of the attacker and victim after a man fatally shot a woman, threw her body out of a car and then was killed in a shootout with sheriff’s deputies.

April Peck, 30, suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at a hospital Sunday night, according to Casey Rayborn Hicks, a spokeswoman for the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Hicks said Peck was killed by Terrell Walker, 48, who died after a shootout with sheriff’s deputies.

Deputies said Walker shot Peck and threw her out of a car.

While a group of passers-by stopped to help the woman, deputies said Walker returned, running over two people, including a 17-year-old, before stepping from his vehicle and opening fire, wounding one. The gunman then drove off, crashing into an ambulance as he fled. Hicks said all of those injured are expected to recover.

Walker was later shot by deputies when he refused to show his hands.

Under a standing agreement with the sheriff’s office, the Louisiana State Police will investigate the shooting of the suspect.

State Police Superintendent Col. Mike Edmonson said a final report will be turned over to District Attorney Hillar Moore III, whose office will determine whether the shooting was legally justified.
