Sheriff: Amber Alert Suspect In Idaho Exchanged Gunfire

SAN DIEGO (AP) - The San Diego County sheriff says the man suspected of abducting a 16-year old California girl fired at least one shot before authorities killed him in the Idaho wilderness.
    
Sheriff Bill Gore told KSWB-TV Monday that Hannah Anderson didn't know her mother and brother had been killed until she was rescued.
    
Gore tells the Fox affiliate that Hannah was taken against her will and was under "extreme duress."
    
Gore, the FBI and Hannah's father have scheduled a news conference in San Diego on Monday.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Federal authorities say the 16-year-old girl who was abducted last week and rescued in Idaho has returned to California with her father.
    
FBI spokesman Jason Pack says Hannah Anderson was reunited with her father, Brett Anderson, on Sunday at a hospital in Boise.
    
The girl was flown to Boise hours after two teams of FBI agents rescued her and shot and killed her abductor, 40-year-old James Lee DiMaggio, at their camp near an alpine lake in the Idaho wilderness Saturday.
    
DiMaggio is also believed to have killed the girl's mother and brother at his home outside of San Diego.
    
Authorities also say Hannah Anderson has been reunited with a gray cat that she had with her in the wilderness last week.
    
Pack did not provide details on Hannah Anderson's health.

At a news conference Sunday in Boise, the four riders - two men and two women - said they came across 16-year-old Hannah Anderson and 40-year-old James Lee DiMaggio on Wednesday morning.
