(Newser) – Two people are dead after a man opened fire on vehicles while driving west through three counties in western Oklahoma early Thursday, reports the Oklahoman. Police say the shooting spree started on I-40 in Canadian County around midnight and continued into Caddo and Custer counties as the shooter drove some 50 miles. A male was killed by a bullet near the Canadian County and Caddo County line, while a woman was shot in Custer County, per KOCO. She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police say the shooter also fired at several tractor-trailers, but no one inside the vehicles was injured. The suspect, who hasn't been named, was arrested in Custer County for DUI at 12:39am. Police say he surrendered peacefully. (Read more Oklahoma stories.)
