A Central Texas man died from a gunshot wound to the head and his companion, a 28-year-old woman, is in custody in Jackson County after a high-speed chase from Victoria to just outside of Edna during the noon hour Tuesday.

Victoria Police Department Lt. Robert Noble said the pair, from the Temple area, were under surveillance at a hotel in Victoria stemming from the recovery of items from a local pawn shop that had been stolen in two daylight burglaries Monday in the Tanglewood subdivision.

At about noon, the 29-year-old man and the woman started putting things, including a rifle, into a vehicle. When officers tried to stop them at Rio Grande and Laurent streets, the driver, who was wanted on felony warrants, refused to stop, heading north on U.S. Highway 59 at speeds up to 95 mph.
