ORLANDO — Authorities say a man fatally shot two women and injured another before turning the gun on himself in Orlando.

Orange County Sheriff's deputies pursuing the suspect Thursday saw him put a handgun to his head and fire just before his car crashed into a tree.

Earlier they say he killed his estranged girlfriend and another woman at the Quality Suites. He then drove to the Westgate Resorts and shot another woman. She's expected to survive.

The Orlando Sentinel reports the shooting was part of an ongoing domestic dispute with the woman. Deputies served the man a domestic violence injunction Wednesday after an incident in Osceola County.

They say he was being investigated for attempting to run over his girlfriend last week at the same hotel where she died Thursday.
