BOCA RATON, Florida. – The authorities say that they are connected to another fatal shooting to a shooter that came to an end a two-day crime spree by killing his girlfriend before he was fatally struck by a sheriff deputy on a highway.
Boca Raton police said in a statement on Thursday that the ballistic evidence left 22-year-old Hugo Selva to the Feb. 7 shooting death of 29-year-old Edvin Milkevic, who was found dead in his car. Authorities say Selva shot his 26-year-old girlfriend, Nicole Novak, in a shopping mall car park later that morning. He drew her into his SUV and drove the wrong way on Interstate 95 before crashing into several cars. A deputy then shot him.
Selva’s and Novak’s Facebook pages showed that she had a daughter last year. The police haven’t said how Selva knew that the other victims.
