FREDONIA, Ariz. – The U.S. Marshals Service has offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the capture of a man accused of killing a Utah sheriff's deputy in northern Arizona.
Authorities say 23-year-old Scott Curley vanished after he fatally shot 41-year-old Kane County Deputy Brian Harris in Fredonia on Thursday and was believed to be hiding in the wilderness on the Arizona-Utah line.
Harris was shot Thursday while chasing Curley.
Curley was suspected of trying to burglarize Fredonia High School and holding a janitor at gunpoint on Wednesday night.
The janitor was unharmed, and Curley avoided authorities until Thursday.
A manhunt was under way for Curley.
Investigators say Curley was armed with an assault rifle.
