A suspected sex offender wounds three officers in a shootout, after he was profiled on national television. That man is now dead. Here's how investigators tracked him down. Charles Mozdir: the suspect in a sex assault in California and a fugitive for more than two years... "This guy is alleged to have molested his college roommate's son," says John Walsh, host of "The Hunt." "He was the guy that everybody trusted, the family trusted so much to take care of this little boy." Just over a week ago, Mozdir was profiled on CNN's "The Hunt" with John Walsh. Investigators say a call during the show provided their first strong lead since 2012. "Once our law enforcement resources had been exhausted, the public through the show was able to be our most viable resource out there and our eyes and ears," says Detective Angel Cedeno of the Coronado Police Department. Another tip after the show's re-broadcast on Sunday, and police were able to track Mozdir down in New York, working at a smoke shop in Manhattan. A New York Police detective and two U.S. Marshals stepped inside, and they say the gun battle started immediately. "Mozdir fired upon the officers at very close range, and the officers returned fire," says New York Police Commissioner William J. Bratton. "The exchange of gunfire, during the exchange of gunfire the detective and two marshals were wounded." Along with a .32-caliber revolver, police say Mozdir had a pocket full of ammunition, about 20 extra rounds. One of the rounds he fired was pulled from the detective's vest, which officials say likely saved his life. California Police spoke to the victim's mother after Mozdir was shot dead. "And she told me, she felt a huge weight lifted off her shoulders," says Cedeno. "Took a breath, took a deep breath, a sigh of relief, and was content that she can have some closure in her case, and that in her eyes, that justice was served." The detective and the two U.S. Marshals injured in the shootout are expected to survive.
