CLEVELAND, Texas (AP) - Police are searching for a man they say killed a woman and wounded three people, including a sheriff's deputy, during shootings in east Texas.
Authorities say that a woman was killed and two men injured Wednesday morning at a plumbing company east of Cleveland, a city of 8,000 people about 50 miles northeast of Houston. Liberty County Sheriff's Office Capt. Ken DeFoor says deputies pursued the suspect, Pablo Vito, along a local highway and then pulled off and exchanged gunfire outside a veterinary clinic.
