A man is dead after police opened fire when the suspect apparently rammed police units after leading authorities on a high-speed chase, authorities say.

Brownsville Police Department Spokeswoman Melissa Gonzalez said the suspect,  20-year-old Mark Anthony Galvan, led police on the chase at around 1:34 a.m. this morning.

The shooting happened on the 1100 block of Boca Chica Boulevard, authorities said.

After the shooting, police took the suspect to the hospital where he died, Gonzalez said.

 Gonzalez said no officers were injured.

The Texas Rangers are investigating the officer-involved shooting.

Police are expected to issue a press release sometime later today.
