Manhunt ends after suspect in fatal shooting commits suicide

Manhunt underway for shooting suspect

The man accused of shooting two people to death and injuring another near Lake Travis Wednesday night shot himself after he was stopped by highway patrol in Mississippi, according to the Travis County Sheriff's Office.

The shooting happened around 7:40 p.m. in the 2000 block of Whitebead Trail, TCSO said. 

Mike Benavides with Austin-Travis County EMS said that multiple units responded and found a woman estimated to be in her 40s and a man estimated to be in his 50s both dead at the scene. 

On Friday, TCSO identified the deceased victims as Richard Gale Guthrie, 60, and Susan Gulla-O'Leary, 60, both of Austin. 

TCSO said both the deceased victims were shot in the head. 

On Thursday, TCSO said a murder warrant with a $2 million bond was created for 54-year-old Randall Lee Burrows in connection to the murders. Friday night, TCSO announced that Burrows killed himself after he was stopped by highway patrol in Miss.

TCSO said Burrows was arrested without conviction for a murder in 1989 and has had two aggravated assault charges over the last year. Burrows lives in the area of the murders. 

STAR Flight transported a woman estimated to be in her 40s to University Medical Center Brackenridge in critical, life-threatening condition, Benavides said. On Thursday, TCSO said she remains in critical condition. 

A neighbor told KVUE's Jason Puckett they heard arguing followed by several gunshots. TCSO said the incident appears to be the result of a business-related dispute.
