My husband has been stuck in traffic on the highway for 3 hours now- Police standoff

2 people robbed a liquor store and the police found them going down the highway,and closed both sides down for about 25 miles in each direction. I just heard the guy shot his female companion,then shot himself. Thousands of motorists are stuck sitting idle waiting for them to reopen the highway,but all the exits are backed up as well.
So how is a murder/suicide an alternative to being arrested?
People are going batshit crazy lately!

  • That is crazy! Wouldn't that be something if the shots weren't fatal and 1 or both survived?
