Texas authorities say a Marine killed there after a shooting spree has no known ties to the state.

Lance Cpl. Esteban J. Smith died Sunday in a gunfight with Texas authorities after a shooting rampage that left one person dead and several hospitalized. Smith is also suspected in the death of his wife in North Carolina.

Authorities believe Smith fatally stabbed his wife in a Jacksonville, N.C., motel room near Camp Lejeune before the shooting rampage.
