ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - More details are emerging about the man suspected of fatally shooting his ex-girlfriend and wounding his son and another man in Rochester before leading police on a chaotic vehicle chase that ended with the suspect dead after exchanging gunfire with officers.
  
Police say 39-year-old Terrell Blake died Wednesday after crashing a rental van into a driveway and shooting at pursing officers. It wasn't clear if Blake was shot by police or if he died of a self-inflicted gunshot.
  
Officials say the chase ensued after officers spotted a van reportedly linked to two separate shootings earlier Wednesday that left 28-year-old Antane Lopez dead and 25-year-old Willie Jakes wounded at the first location and 20-year-old Terrell Blake Jr. wounded at the second location.
  
Blake Sr. had a criminal history that included prison time for a forgery-related conviction.
