CHICAGO -- Authorities say a man killed three people and wounded four others in a series of shootings that started on Chicago’s South Side and ended with his death in a shootout with police in a parking lot just north of the city.

Chicago police Superintendent David Brown told reporters that Investigators are trying to determine a motive for the attacks.

They began Saturday afternoon with the killing of a 30-year-old University of Chicago student in a parking garage in the Hyde Park neighborhood.

He says 32-year-old Jason Nightengale went on to shoot people in a random apartment complex, a store and a car before heading north to Evanston, where he shot someone in a restaurant before police killed him.
