        A man who doused himself in an accelerant and set himself on fire outside the courthouse where former President Donald Trump is on trial is on trial has died.
        
        The New York City Police Department told The Associated Press early Saturday that the man was declared dead by staff at an area hospital.
        
        Officials and witnesses said, the man was in Collect Pond Park around 1:30 p.m. Friday when he took out pamphlets espousing conspiracy theories, tossed them around, then doused himself in an accelerant and set himself on fire.
        
        A large number of police officers were nearby when it happened. Some officers and bystanders rushed to the aid of the man, who was hospitalized in critical condition.
        
        The man, who police said recently traveled from Florida to New York, had not breached any security checkpoints to access the park.
        
        The park outside the courthouse has been a gathering spot for protesters, journalists and gawkers throughout Trump's trial, which began with jury selection Monday.
