CASCADE, Idaho (AP) - The FBI says it's sending a team to Idaho to investigate the shooting that led to the death of a man suspected of killing a California woman and her young son and abducting her 16-year-old daughter.

Forty-year-old James Lee DiMaggio was killed Saturday after his campsite was spotted in Idaho's rugged Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness.

The teen, Hannah Anderson, was found safe. Ada County sheriff's spokeswoman Andrea Dearden says she has no apparent injuries and there are no reports of injuries among law enforcement.

At a news conference Saturday evening, Dearden said the teen and DiMaggio were spotted not far from where a horseback rider reported seeing the pair Wednesday.

Dearden said she didn't know if DiMaggio fired at officers.

Authorities offered few other details as the team from Washington, D.C., prepares to investigate.
