Man who barricaded himself in Frederick hotel surrenders

FREDERICK, Md. (WUSA9) -- A fugitive who refused to come out of his Frederick hotel room surrendered peacefully Tuesday at 5:15 p.m. and is now in custody.

David M. Fioramonti, 41, of Purcellville, Va. barricaded himself in his hotel room located in the 5500 block of Spectrum Drive, the Maryland State Police said. Fioramonti is wanted on a federal warrant from the Eastern District of Virginia for violation of probation, according to authorities.

A team from the Frederick County Sheriff's Office along with a team from the Maryland State Police talked and negotiated with Fioramonti throughout the afternoon. Police said they were able to convince him to surrender peacefully.

The man walked out of his hotel room and troopers from the State Police Special Tactical Assault Team Element took him into custody, police said. Fioramonti appeared to have stabbed himself several time in his torso and neck, according to police.

Police are not sure what the fugitive used to stab himself. He was taken to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center where he is undergoing treatment, authorities said.

The U.S. Marshal's Service has custody of the fugitive, since he was wanted on a federal warrant.

Police said they will be obtaining a search warrant and will also search his hotel room. According to authorities, he was living in the room for several weeks.

Police did not find a gun, despite claims made earlier by Fioramonti.

All 30 guests at the hotel were safely evacuated and no injuries were reported police said.
