A car chase in Mineral Wells ended with police killing a suspect in the kidnap-murder of a four-year-old boy.

Police believe Arturo Barrera kidnapped Salvador Briones Jr. on Friday, killed him and dumped his body near an abandoned house.

A massive manhunt ended when authorities surrounded the 23-year-old at a ranch and ordered him to drop his weapon.

When he refused, officers opened fire.

Authorities say the suspect also demanded ransom money from the family.

The cause of death has not yet been released.
