BEDFORD, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say an escaped inmate suspected of shooting a southwest Iowa sheriff's deputy has been killed by a homeowner who said the armed man broke into his house.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety announced that Rodney Long was shot to death early Tuesday. No one else was seriously injured in the shooting in Bedford.

Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation Special Agent Mitch Mortveldt says 71-year-old Jerome Mauderly shot Long with a shotgun in the kitchen of the home he shares with his wife, Carolyn.

Long broke into their home around 10:15 p.m. Monday, August 19, 2013, disabled their phone and held the couple at gun point for nearly four hours.

Shortly after 2 a.m., Carolyn Mauderly called 911 to tell authorities her husband had shot Long.

Authorities had been searching for Long since Sunday night, when the fugitive shot and wounded a deputy.
