VILLAGE OF MOUNT PLEASANT, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say a 20-year-old man accused of abducting a woman from a southeastern Wisconsin hospital and fleeing from sheriff’s deputies in an exchange of gunfire has died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Mount Pleasant police say Stantavious Sillas was pronounced dead Monday evening at a Milwaukee area hospital.

Racine police say officers tracked Sillas to a home in the Village of Mount Pleasant and found him hiding in the bushes. They say the man threatened to shoot himself with a handgun, and did so despite intervention efforts.

Several schools in Racine County canceled classes Monday as authorities searched the area for the man.

Authorities said the woman was shaken but otherwise unharmed after the incident.
