MOAB, Utah — Nearly 100 officers tracking a gunman in a rugged Utah canyon Saturday were believed to be closing in on the suspect accused of shooting and critically wounding a park ranger, authorities said.
Grand County Sheriff James Nyland said officers were able to pick up the man's footprints and found his rifle and backpack along the Colorado River, about 22 miles southwest of Moab.
"It could still take a while, but we think we're getting closer (to finding the suspect)," Nyland told the Salt Lake Tribune.
Searchers later found a tattered, bloody T-shirt that the suspect may have used to stanch a heavily bleeding wound, the sheriff said.

Website ordered to remove leaked pages
NEW YORK — A federal judge on Saturday ordered Gawker Media to pull leaked pages of Sarah Palin's forthcoming book "America by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith and Flag" from its blog.
The injunction prohibits Gawker from "continuing to distribute, publish or otherwise transmit pages from the book" pending a hearing on Nov. 30.
HarperCollins Publishers had sued Gawker after it published images on Nov. 17 from Palin's book before its release next week.
Gawker defended its action in a post Thursday titled "Sarah Palin is Mad at Us for Leaking Pages From Her Book" and addressed a message to "Sarah" telling her to read pages about fair use under copyright law.
