Two men suspected in a carjacking at the Grand Canyon on Monday are dead after a chase on Wednesday.
A suspected carjacking, a high-speed chase, and a desperate act of violence ended the life of two brothers authorities believe were responsible for a car theft in the Grand Canyon.
Travis Twiggs, 36, and brother Willard Twiggs, 38, died in apparent suicide shootings near Interstate 8 and Stanfield Road after a high-speed chase early on Wednesday, said authorities from the Pinal County Sheriff's Office.
The brothers were suspected in a carjacking Monday at the Grand Canyon. The chase began after authorities attempted to pull over the suspects, who fled down Interstate 8 about 15 miles west of Interstate 10 and south of Casa Grande, said authorities.
Deputies from the Pinal County Sheriff's Office and the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, agents from the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection and officers from the state Department of Public Safety cornered the two men at Interstate 8 and Stanfield Road after nail-embedded strips mangled the tires of the vehicle. The two men shot themselves before officers could reach them, authorities said.
The investigation is still ongoing.
