SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Authorities say a 33-year-old Washington state man who fled before he could be sentenced on federal child pornography counts is hospitalized in Nevada after shooting himself as sheriff's deputies closed in.
Eureka County, Nev., Sheriff Ken Jones said Wednesday that Daniel Camp looked out his hotel window as deputies approached on Tuesday. Officers heard a gunshot seconds later and found Camp wounded in his room.
Camp was airlifted to Renown Medical Center in Reno, Nev. KHQ-TV in Spokane reported that he was in critical condition Wednesday.
Jones says his office was alerted by the FBI that Camp might be in the area. His deputies had planned to arrest the man on an outstanding fugitive warrant but never got that chance.
Seattle FBI spokeswoman Ayn Dietrich confirms her agency had been seeking Camp on a fugitive warrant but would add only that the FBI is "no longer actively trying to locate him."
