ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say the suspect in the fatal shooting of a woman and wounding of two men has been killed in a shootout with police during a vehicle chase that sped through a Rochester neighborhood.
  
Police say Wednesday that the suspect died after being shot by officers after leading them on a zig-zagging chase through a residential area.
  
Video posted on the Democrat and Chronicle's website shows at least one officer on foot shooting out the driver's-side window of a passing rental van that kept going. Officials say the officer opened fire after the 47-year-old man driving the van fired at him.
  
Officials say the chase occurred after two shootings about an hour apart Wednesday left a woman dead and two men wounded, including the suspect's son, who's in his 20s.
