October 22, 2017

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Boise police say a man who was being sought for a rape early Saturday apparently killed himself after fleeing from officers.

KBOI-TV reports that police initially responded to an address near Compass Drive and Hill Road at about 1:50 a.m. Saturday. They spoke with the victim, who said she knew the assailant, and she was taken to a hospital.

Officers found a car matching the suspect’s at about 4 a.m., but it took off when they turned on their lights. They did not pursue it, but located it again and found the suspect dead inside from an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The man’s identity is expected to be released by the Ada County coroner in the coming days. Police said detectives are continuing to investigate.
