An Ohio State University student and a man suspected of kidnapping her at gunpoint were shot dead in a police chase in Kentucky. The couple was previously in a relationship.
Skylar Williams, 20, was kidnapped at gunpoint at 11:45 a.m. Monday from the school’s parking lot by a man identified as Ty’rell Pounds. He forced her into his Dodge Challenger and took off. Later Monday, Kentucky State Police got a call about a woman asking people for help at a gas station. A chase ensued until the car stopped on an off-ramp. A trooper heard gunfire coming from inside the vehicle and fired, striking and killing the suspect. “During this event, the female passenger was struck by at least one round of gunfire,” police said.
