Gunman Who Killed 2 Deputies Linked to 1996 Shooting

Posted: Updated:

ABINGDON, Md. (AP) - Authorities say the man who recently shot and killed two sheriff's deputies in Harford County was wanted for questioning in the shooting of his ex-wife nearly two decades ago, but detectives were unable to find him.
    
Hartford County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Cristie Kahler says that 68-year-old David Brian Evans was suspected in the 1996 shooting of Elizabeth Rupp, but there wasn't enough evidence to arrest him.
    
Rupp, who survived, was shot in the neck as she left her Abingdon home for work.
    
Kahler says detectives searched for months, trying to locate Evans for questioning, but he was never found.
    
Investigators say Evans fatally shot Deputy Patrick Dailey in a restaurant Wednesday and killed another deputy, Mark Logsdon, in shootout nearby before he was killed himself.
