The day-long manhunt for a man accused of shooting at a North Dakota state trooper and stealing multiple vehicles – including one with a baby inside – ended Friday night.

Kari Agotness – the Ramsey County state's attorney in North Dakota – sent out a news release Saturday saying 23-year-old Daniel Michael TwoHearts was located in the city of Devils Lake.

There had been reports of a hostage situation involving the suspect, but Agotness said that was not the case. There had been other people in the apartment where TwoHearts was found, though.

As law enforcement worked to get the suspect to surrender, a gun shot went off.
Captain Jon Barnett with the Devils Lake Police Department told the Devils Lake Journal they believe TwoHearts shot himself. It wasn't fatal, though.

According to the state's attorney, TwoHearts is at a hospital receiving medical treatment. His condition is unknown.Officials say the investigation is ongoing, but there is no longer a threat to the public.

The Devils Lake Journals reported TwoHearts is expected to be charged with attempted murder, among other things.

The original story from Friday, Feb. 3 is below.

There's an ongoing manhunt for a man who shot at a North Dakota state trooper and stole two vehicles, including one with a baby inside.

The North Dakota State Patrol has identified the suspect as 23-year-old Daniel Michael TwoHearts, calling him "armed and dangerous."

The State Patrol says the suspect could be driving a silver 2005 Ford Taurus with North Dakota plates 679AOF, which he stole Thursday night or early Friday morning. Officials are asking anyone who sees something suspicious to call 911, and to not approach the suspect if they see him (photo below).

The manhunt for the suspect began around 9:30 p.m. Thursday in Grand Forks.

The State Patrol says a trooper tried to pull the suspect's pickup truck over, but he fled at speeds of 100 mph. The vehicle was eventually stopped using tire spikes, but police say the suspect got out of the car, fired three shots at a trooper (the trooper wasn't hit), and then fled on foot.

Then around 11:04 p.m., the State Patrol got a report of a stole vehicle in Hillsboro that had a baby inside. Police eventually caught up with that vehicle and deployed tire spikes. The baby was found safe inside, but the driver again fled on foot, before stealing the Ford Taurus described above.

The State Patrol says there were three passengers in the pickup truck with him; two of them were arrested. Officials said they found methamphetamine in the pickup truck.

The West Fargo Pioneer and Valley News Live are reporting the Traill County State’s Attorney’s Office has charged TwoHearts with attempted murder.
