A western Oklahoma sheriff says two people are dead after a man drove through three counties on Interstate 40, firing randomly from his pickup truck.

Multiple other vehicles were struck by gunfire in the incident early Thursday, and the suspect surrendered without incident.

Custer County Sheriff Bruce Peoples says reports came in late Wednesday of a man firing at vehicles on Interstate 40 in Canadian County in central Oklahoma. The sheriff says the man drove west on the interstate and continued firing at vehicles, killing two people in separate shootings about 10 miles apart.

The sheriff says the suspect surrendered early Thursday and is being booked in the Custer County jail. He says authorities have not yet interviewed the suspect but that road rage is suspected in the shootings.
