A woman says her ex-boyfriend was attempting to kill her when he shot at her from a slain Kansas woman's car and then killed himself when the plot failed.

The Kansas City Star reports that Bryanna Spencer says Kareem McCoy-Lee used the car of 18-year-old Mikayla Norris on Tuesday to chase her as she was driving to a job interview in Liberty, Missouri. Spencer escaped with the help of a worker who happened to be nearby and said Wednesday that she felt burdened by the knowledge that McCoy-Lee's plot against her claimed Norris' life.

Police say McCoy-Lee's body was found later Tuesday in Liberty, while Norris' body was found in Kansas City, Missouri. The Overland Park, Kansas, woman was last seen alive Sunday leaving her job at a barbecue restaurant.
