A 22-year-old man whose alleged crime spree turned South Florida upside down - with three shootings, a homicide and a series of wrong-way crashes that paralyzed a major highway for nearly 8 hours - was identified as Hugo Steven Selva.

Selva was romantically involved with Nicole M. Novak, 26, according to their Facebook pages. Hugo is accused of mortally wounding her in front of a Lake Worth convenience store Wednesday morning.

He then put Novak in his Nissan Rogue SUV and sped into oncoming traffic on Interstate 95 in Lantana before a Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office deputy shot and killed him, that agency said.

Three motorists had "just about head-on" collisions with Selva's Nissan, Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said then. Those drivers were taken to hospitals; their injuries were not believed to be life-threatening, according to the sheriff.

On Tuesday afternoon and in the early morning hours Wednesday, Selva is also suspected of shooting and wounding two men: One in West Palm Beach who was not named by police, and Anthony Fonti, 21, in Boynton Beach, a police spokeswoman for that city said.

Though the sheriff's office said Wednesday Selva was linked to all three shootings, Boynton Beach police said Thursday its investigation had more work to do "to 100 percent confirm the connection."

Both of those men injured by gunfire survived, according to authorities.

Palm Beach County is a county in the state of Florida that is directly north of Broward County . As of the 2010 census, the population was 1,320,134, making it the third-most populous county in Florida . The largest city and county seat is West Palm Beach .

"We're still trying to piece together yesterday's events," Corporal Eric Davis, spokesman for the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, said Thursday. "The investigation has a lot of tentacles with the cities of West Palm Beach and Boynton Beach, and the incidents that happened there."

None of the police agencies involved have released a possible motive for the violence.

Davis said though Novak and Selva named each other as relationship partners on Facebook, he could not confirm if they were still romantically involved when Selva killed Novak.

Selva wrote that he attended Park Vista Community High School in Lake Worth, and at one time Novak had ties to Merritt Island. In some photographs she was pregnant and appeared smiling with Selva, and in others she is holding an infant. But Davis said detectives have not confirmed any those details, including whether the child was Novak's.

Trump: Service members make Super Bowl Sunday possible

  Trump: Service members make Super Bowl Sunday possible President Donald Trump expressed appreciation for U.S. service members on Super Bowl Sunday, saying their bravery and sacrifice help make occasions like the year's most-watched football game possible and renewing his criticism of NFL players who kneel during the national anthem. "Though many of our Nation's service members are unable to be home with family and friends to enjoy this evening's American tradition, they are always in our thoughts and prayers," Trump said in a statement about the game shortly before the matchup between the defending New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles got underway.

Before Selva was shot, calls to 911 alerted police about the Nissan driving south in the northbound lanes of the highway, where cars were running off the road or crashing near Lantana.

The Nissan had entered the highway at Southern Boulevard and was in three, "just about head-on" collisions as it traveled south, Bradshaw said.

The last crash disabled the Nissan, which briefly caught fire. That's when a Florida Highway Patrol trooper and Palm Beach County sheriff's deputy approached the SUV on the interstate, the sheriff's office said.

The trooper fired a stun gun at Selva but it had no effect on him, Bradshaw said Wednesday.

"Due to [the suspect's] actions that he was performing in the car, the deputy said that he was in fear for his life and the life of the trooper, and opened fire and killed the suspect inside," Bradshaw said then.

The sheriff would not describe what Selva did that prompted the deputy to use deadly force.

"It was enough to let the deputy know that he needed to do what he needed to do, trust me," Bradshaw said.

The trooper and deputy were not named. The trooper was put on paid administrative leave, as is department policy after a shooting.

Video from a television news helicopter showed several cars with destroyed front ends and debris scattered across highway lanes. Firefighters had to cut Selva's body out of his wrecked SUV, Bradshaw said.

The sheriff's office will be investigating the Lake Worth fatal shooting and the incidents on Interstate 95. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement will investigate the fatal shooting by the deputy and the trooper's use of the stun gun, Bradshaw said.

The chaos in Lantana was not related to a pre-dawn incident Wednesday in Boca Raton, where a man was shot dead while driving south on I-95, Boca Raton police said.

The sheriff's office asks anyone with information about these crimes to call detectives at 561-688-3400 or Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County, at 800-458-8477., 954-356-4233 or Twitter @LindaTrischitta
