BOONE COUNTY, Ky. (Rich Jaffe) -- The hunt for the man who stole a Boone County sheriff deputy's SUV is over. It started at about 3 a.m. Monday morning when deputies placed Joshua Grizzell in the back of the SUV as part of an investigation. It ended later in the morning, when Grizzell shot himself at a culvert near Maher Road and Dixie HighwayThe investigation started with a broken down vehicle on southbound I-75. Grizzell and another man ended up walking in the northbound lanes. When deputies started to question them, they put each man into a sheriff's vehicle. At some point, investigators say Grizzell managed to work himself into the driver's seat of the deputy's SUV. He took off on northbound I-75.Deputies found the vehicle abandoned in an industrial park, the deputy's shotgun was missing. Investigators say Grizzell was later spotted kicking in the back door of a home. The homeowner fired a shot, possibly as a warning. They say Grizzell ran off.

Grizzell then shot himself in the chest with the shotgun.A medical helicopter rushed him to the hospital. No word on his condition.
