      Texarkana police: Man dies in shootout

      TEXARKANA (AP) - Texarkana police say a man was found dead in a car after he was involved in a shootout with another vehicle.

      Police say officers found a wrecked car Thursday night in the 800 block of Pinehurst Street. Texarkana police spokeswoman Kristi Mitchell says officers had to break out a window of the car because the doors were all locked.

      Officers found a man shot to death inside the vehicle. Mitchell says his name is being withheld, pending notification of relatives.

      The Texarkana Gazette reports that the man was involved in a shootout with another vehicle. Witnesses told police that the victim drove in reverse down Pinehurst as he was being fired upon from a car that was pursuing him.

      No arrests have been made.
