Nebraska fugitive who shot himself has died, officials say


Authorities say a Nebraska fugitive who shot himself rather than surrender to tribal and federal officers has died at a hospital.

The FBI says 25-year-old David Hoffman refused to give up peacefully Wednesday when found on the Santee Sioux Indian Reservation in northeast Nebraska. Authorities say he was taken to a hospital in nearby Yankton, South Dakota, where he died.

FBI spokeswoman Sandra Breault says none of the officers fired and no injuries to anyone else have been reported.
