Authorities in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, have released the identities of the attacker and the victim in the case of a man who shot a woman and threw her body out of a car before he died in a shootout with sheriff's deputies.
Casey Rayborn Hicks is a spokeswoman for the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's office. Hicks says 30-year-old April Peck suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital Sunday night.

Deputies say Walker returned, running over two of the by-standers, including a 17-year-old, before stepping from his vehicle and opening fire, wounding one. The gunman then drove off, crashing into an ambulance as he fled.
Walker was later shot by deputies when he refused to show his hands.
