REYNOLDS, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota prosecutor says the suspect accused of shooting at a state trooper did not take hostages before shooting himself in an apartment.

Ramsey County State's Attorney Kari Agotness said in a statement Saturday that while other people were in the Devils Lake apartment with 23-year-old Daniel TwoHearts, "this was not a hostage situation."

Police had said TwoHearts barricaded himself in the apartment with two hostages. Police got the man and woman out and were negotiating with TwoHearts when he shot himself.

TwoHearts was airlifted to a hospital. His condition is not known.

The ordeal began Thursday night with an attempted traffic stop in Grand Forks. Authorities say TwoHearts fired at a trooper who was not hit and stole two cars, including one with a baby inside.
