(CNN) -- A man suspected of killing five people inside a West Virginia home killed himself after a police chase in Kentucky, authorities said.
Police arrived Monday at a home in the Morgantown area after receiving a request for a welfare check and found five bodies with gunshot wounds inside, West Virginia State Police said.
"The information that we developed on the suspect is that he left that residence in a vehicle of one of the victims," Capt. James Merrill told reporters Tuesday.
The suspect struck a vehicle, and when an elderly woman came out, "the suspect ran her over," Merrill said.
The man then drove on Interstate 79 and arrived at a gas station, "where he randomly shot and seriously wounded the station attendant in back of the neck," police said.
Merrill said the suspect then headed to Kentucky and led a brief chase with authorities from Lewis County.
"After a short pursuit, the suspect stopped his vehicle and fatally shot himself," Merrill said.
The suspect was identified as 22-year-old Shayne Riggleman of Morgantown. Police said he was an acquaintance of some of the victims.
Merrill said police do have a suspected motive, but did not want to divulge it, citing the ongoing investigation.
