Fugitive Shoots, Wounds Self After Chase

Associated Press - December 15, 2016 10:10 am

Authorities say a suspect in a Florida killing has shot and critically wounded himself after exchanging gunfire with U.S. Marshals and crashing a vehicle into a Wichita home.

The 26-year-old man shot at the marshals Wednesday after they approached him. Police spokesman Officer Charley Davidson says the marshals returned fire before the suspect drove off with a woman. They crashed after a brief chase and took off running. Davidson says the suspect shot himself in the head when authorities caught up with him.

He was rushed to a hospital, and the woman wasn’t immediately found.

The suspect’s name hasn’t been released. The Jacksonville County Sheriff’s Office in Florida said in a tweet that the man was suspected in a September 2015 killing at a hotel.
