COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -- Police issued a warrant Wednesday for the man accused of kidnapping and raping a 13-year-old girl.

Michael Nixon, 31, was hospitalized Monday following a nine-hour standoff with authorities. He suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound according to police.

Police said they plan to arrest Nixon when he is released from the hospital.

Officers were called to Nixon’s house on Monday when the girl reported that Nixon sexually assaulted her. She said he held her against her will.

Nixon’s bond has been set at $500,000.
