(FREDERICK, MD) -- A fugitive who told police attempting to arrest him that he had a gun and refused to come out of his Frederick hotel room has surrendered peacefully and is in custody.

The fugitive is identified as David M. Fioramonti, 41, of Purcellville, Va. He is wanted on a federal warrant from the Eastern District of Virginia for violation of probation.

A police negotiating team from the Frederick County Sheriff's Office, assisted by a team from the Maryland State Police, had communicated with Fioramonti throughout the afternoon. Negotiators convinced him to surrender peacefully.

At about 5:15 p.m., Fioramonti walked out of his hotel room and was taken into custody by troopers from the State Police Special Tactical Assault Team Element. Troopers immediately noticed the fugitive had wounds to his torso and neck.

EMS personnel were summoned and treated Fioramonti for multiple self-inflicted stabbing type wounds. It is not known at this time what he used to stab himself. He was transported to a waiting Maryland State Police helicopter and flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center where he is undergoing treatment.

Fioramonti has been turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal's Service, since he was wanted on a federal warrant. Questions regarding the warrant should be directed to the U.S. Marshal's Service.

Maryland State Police criminal investigators will be obtaining a search warrant and will conduct a search of the fugitive's room. He had apparently been living at the hotel for several weeks. A firearm has not been recovered.
