MINNEAPOLIS — The man and woman shot to death this week following a police chase in Eden Prairie have been identified.

The Hennepin County medical examiner's office says the two were 36-year-old Matthew Vincent Serbus and 34-year-old Dawn Marie Pfister. Neither had a permanent address, and each died from multiple gunshot wounds.

Authorities say the two were in a speeding vehicle that was driving erratically Friday morning. State Patrol Lt. Eric Roeske (ROS'-kee) says their car rear-ended another vehicle and sped from the scene. A subsequent police chase reached speeds of more than 90 mph.

The suspects' vehicle crashed into a wall, and when the man and woman got out there was a police-involved shooting. Authorities haven't discussed details of the gunfight and haven't said whether Serbus and Pfister were armed.
