CUSTER COUNTY, Oklahoma -

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says two people are dead after a driver started shooting at other vehicles while driving on Interstate-40 west of Oklahoma City early Thursday.  

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol eventually stopped and arrested the suspect in Custer County, but not before he had shot and killed a man near El Reno and killed a woman near Weatherford.

The OSBI says just after midnight, the suspect was driving west on I-40 and ran a man and woman off the highway.  The man was then shot and was pronounced dead at the scene.  

A short time later, near Weatherford, authorities say a woman was shot inside her car.  She was taken to a Weatherford hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The OHP reports the suspect fired shots at number of semis on the I-40, but didn't hit anyone.  

Troopers said the unidentified suspect was taken to the Custer County jail where he was initially booked on a complaint of DUI.
