Police: Ohio kidnapping suspect kills self in car

CLEVELAND (AP) — Police in Cleveland say a woman found two days after her ex-boyfriend kidnapped her may have injured her arm in the abduction but otherwise appears to be in good condition.

Police say the man shot himself to death Monday morning as officers approached the car he was in with the woman on Cleveland’s west side.

Police had been searching for 35-year-old Derrick Hudson since Saturday morning. That’s when they say he kidnapped his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint after shooting and injuring his aunt and uncle, who live in the same building.

Cleveland’s police chief says Hudson’s ex-girlfriend told officers they had spent two days driving without stopping.

The chief says the pair made their way to Detroit on Sunday morning but were back in the Cleveland area that night.
