A chase and fatal crash involving an SUV stopped by police in Pasadena may be connected to an earlier shooting that claimed the life of one man and critically wounded another, authorities said.

The SUV driver was heading away from a six-square-block area in Northwest Pasadena where police were searching for answers in the fatal 11 a.m. shooting, when police tried to stop it for a violation, authorities said.

The SUV sped off, blowing through an intersection and smashing into a van, killing two people inside, police said.  

The vehicle involved in the Tuesday evening crash "may have matched one of the vehicles they were looking at in connection with the shootings,'' Pasadena
police Lt. Pete Hettema told City News Service.

Paramedics rushed two shooting victims to an area hospital where one was
pronounced dead and the other was listed in critical condition, police said.
