Raoul Moat was being treated for a gunshot wound after a six-hour stand-off with police.
After a seven-day manhunt, Moat surfaced in Rothbury, Northumberland, at about 7.30pm following a series of reported sightings of him in the immediate area.
Shortly after 1am, after several hours of negotiations with police, there were reports of gunfire.
Peter Albiston, an eyewitness, said he heard two shots and thought he saw paramedics rushing towards Moat.

More to the point, getting the truth?
The car that was abandoned for instance? A local resident had said it had been there a day or so? If that was the case then he cant be in 2 places at once? check for yourself. The statement was the following day?
The black Lexus recovered by police today was spotted in Rothbury as long ago as Saturday, a local man has told my colleague Rob Booth.
An employee at the Home Bakery on the Rothbury industrial estate near to where Moat's Lexus was found told me police activity appears to be centred on a wooded area beside the industrial estate which is often used for illegal camping.
Again, he asked not to be named, but he said he saw the same Lexus over the weekend and was suspicious enough to take down its registration.
"The Lexus was seen this morning around here," he said. "I saw it on Saturday morning just 20 yards from where I am now. I saw two young men get out of it. I made a note of the registration number because I wondered if it was illegal camping. Neither of them were the man they are looking for."
He said that police have told the bakery staff to "lock your doors" and workers due to clock on shortly are not able to get in to begin their shifts.
"We are a bit concerned," he said. "My little boy is 11 and is up at the school about one mile away. I am concerned that they are keeping them inside."
He said he couldn't get through to find out because the phone was engaged.
The whole story is BS, and this is my last post on this thread.
