DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - A man accused of shooting at police officers in Grand Forks, stealing a car with a baby inside, leading law enforcement on a wild chase and evading capture for more than a day is in custody after an apparent suicide attempt, according to authorities.
Daniel TwoHearts, who lived in Bismarck at least as recently as 2015 according to court documents, shot himself after officers began to negotiate with him in a Devils Lake apartment, according Capt. John Barnett. Authorities have not released TwoHearts' condition.
Police were able to recover the baby unharmed after spike strips blew out the tires in the stolen car, but TwoHearts escaped on foot.
TwoHearts evaded capture twice, before police finally caught up to him about 80 miles from where the chase began.
He's been charged with one count of attempted murder, but more charges may soon be coming.
Police arrested two others in the truck with TwoHearts when he originally evaded capture and shot at police for possession of methamphetamine.
