BLOOMINGTON — Bloomington police say a man wanted for holding a woman captive and assaulting her has been critically injured after shooting himself in the head while fleeing officers.
Lt. John Kovach says 34-year-old Brandon Michael Richardson was hospitalized in critical condition Friday after the shooting.
Richardson’s accused of torturing a 29-year-old woman and keeping her confined in a home over three days, using a dog leash to restrain her, a metal bar to beat her and a switchblade to stab her in her head, back and legs.
After Richardson left the home Wednesday morning, the woman escaped to a neighbor’s home. She’s hospitalized for broken bones, puncture wounds and other injuries.
Richardson was wanted on charges including attempted murder, criminal confinement, and strangulation.
No officers were injured in the capture Friday.
