FL Man Wanted In Murder Shot, Killed By Police In Florida

A man wanted in Florida for gunning down a trombone player as she left orchestra practice has shot and killed by authorities in Pennsylvania. 

Pennsylvania state police say troopers tried to stop Steven Brooks late Thursday for erratic driving on a roadway outside of Pittsburgh. 

They say the 45-year-old St. Petersburg, Florida, man drove off the wrong way down Interstate 70 before crashing into a bridge support column. 

Brooks fled on foot during the stop and scaled a fence before pulling out a gun on officers, according to authorities. He also allegedly refused orders to drop the weapon. 

Brooks was shot.

A manhunt had been underway for Brooks since the February killing of Caroline Morton-Hicks.

Police in Alabama say Brooks was tracked to a home there. 

That led to a standoff with police Wednesday night, but he managed to flee.
