(CNN) — James DiMaggio — the California murder suspect who allegedly kidnapped 16-year-old Hannah Anderson — was shot and killed by an FBI agent in the Idaho wilderness, a sheriff said Saturday.
Authorities first spotted the pair’s campsite from the air, then sent in law enforcement personnel on the ground, said San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore. An FBI tactical agent killed DiMaggio during a confrontation about 5:15 p.m. (7:15 p.m. ET) near Morehead Lake, said the sheriff.
The teenage girl was found alive near him.
“She appears well and was rescued and will be transported to a hospital in Idaho,” Gore said.
Hannah Anderson was last seen at her cheerleading practice August 3; her mother and brother died in a fire at DiMaggio’s home in San Diego County the next day.
