Fugitive British gunman dead: Source
London: Raoul Moat, the fugitive gunman snared by British police after a massive manhunt, has died, a source told a news agency, after apparently shooting himself on Saturday in an armed siege.
A well-placed source confirmed that the 37-year-old, on the run for a week following a deadly shooting spree, was dead.
BBC television, Sky News and the domestic Press Association news agency also cited sources saying Moat was dead.
Police said it appeared that "the suspect shot himself" and was "in hospital receiving treatment for his injuries".
He was rushed by ambulance from the village of Rothbury to Newcastle General Hospital, in northeast England, where he was carried in on a stretcher, with a blanket covering his head.
