Sheriff: Suspect in Idaho exchanged gunfire

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The San Diego County sheriff says the man suspected of abducting a 16-year old California girl fired at least one shot before authorities killed him in the Idaho wilderness.

Sheriff Bill Gore told KSWB-TV Monday that Hannah Anderson didn’t know her mother and brother had been killed until she was rescued.

Gore tells the Fox affiliate that Hannah was taken against her will and was under “extreme duress.”

Gore, the FBI and Hannah’s father have scheduled a news conference in San Diego on Monday.
