FARGO, N.D. – A North Dakota man who led police on a wild chase in which he stole a car with a baby inside and eventually shot and wounded himself has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison.
Prosecutors say troopers attempted to pull over 24-year-old Daniel TwoHearts in eastern North Dakota in February 2017. Authorities say the Fort Totten man ditched a pickup he was driving, shot in the direction of officers and led police on an 80-mile chase. Along the way he stole three vehicles, including one with an infant inside.
TwoHearts eventually wound up at a Devils Lake apartment. Police say he shot himself in the chest after a brief standoff.
TwoHearts pleaded guilty to numerous charges. The sentence ordered Tuesday also calls for five years of supervised release.
