HAWK POINT, Mo. (AP) - Police say a man suspected in this week's abduction of a 4-year-old Missouri girl has shot himself after being approached by authorities.

St. Louis County Police say in a news release that the man was approached Wednesday in the city of Hawk Point.

Hawk Point is about halfway between where Alisa Maier was taken from her front yard Monday night and the St. Louis suburb where she was found late Tuesday wandering around a car wash.

The news release doesn't say whether the man survived the self-inflicted shooting. A news conference was scheduled for later Wednesday evening.
