The search is over in the manhunt for a sniper wanted for the murder of his estranged wife who was shot while she sang at a bar over the weekend. David Munis, 36, had been on the run from authorities ever since the shooting. On Tuesday, an anonymous call was received from a man who spotted Munis at a small camping trailer about 15 miles north of Laramie, Wyoming. The position was about five miles outside the search area. At about 7:45 p.m., Munis was found shot in the chest with a high-power rifle. He was flown to the hospital and pronounced dead at 8:01 p.m.

Over the weekend, Munis’ estranged wife, 40-year-old Robin Munis, was singing with a country rock group at the Old Chicago restaurant on Saturday when a bullet was shot through the glass door and hit her in the head, fatally wounding her. All fingers pointed to Munis who is known to have received sniper training with the military. A black truck matching Munis’ was also seen speeding out of the parking lot right after the shooting. No one had heard from him since.

A 75 member manhunt had been searching for Munis in a canyon area near where his pickup truck was spotted on Monday night. He is believed to have shot himself as searchers closed in on him. A six-page, handwritten note addressed to “Everyone” was found at his home. Though he doesn’t come out and say it, it basically confesses to his wife’s murder.
