Deputies identify murder suspect killed on Florida highway

LANTANA, Fla. – Florida authorities have identified the gunman who ended a two-day crime spree by killing his girlfriend before he was fatally struck by a sheriff’s deputy of a major highway.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday that the 22-year-old Hugo Selva shot his 26-year-old girlfriend, Nicole Novak, in a shopping center parking lot Wednesday. He drew her into his SUV and drove the wrong way on Interstate 95 before crashing into several cars. A deputy then shot him.

The police has identified Wood as a suspect in two non-fatal shootings on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Selva’s and Novak’s Facebook pages showed that she had a daughter last year.

Palm Beach County court records show one other woman sought a restraining order against Selva in 2016, on suspicion of domestic violence. The petition was later withdrawn.
