Authorities say a man sought after assaulting and disarming a police officer shot himself as officers tried to arrest him on the Santee Sioux Indian Reservation in northeast Nebraska.

Authorities say David Hoffman refused to surrender when found on the reservation Wednesday. He was taken to a local hospital where he died. FBI spokeswoman Sandy Breault says no officers were injured.

The search began Tuesday afternoon after a Niobrara police officer tried to arrest Hoffman on a Knox County warrant alleging burglary and theft, KETV reports.
