Previous reports said that he was dead on the scene, but new information may suggest that he’s in critical condition at a nearby Virginia hospital.
Huffington Post reports:
At around 11:30 a.m. Flanagan’s vehicle went off the road and crashed while he was fleeing law enforcement on the highway, Virginia State Police told The Huffington Post. Troopers found Flanagan in the vehicle with a gunshot wound. He was taken to a nearby hospital with life-threatening injuries.
