— Authorities said a man suspected in the fatal shooting of two Topeka police officers has died after an armed standoff with law enforcement at a house in the city.

The man is suspected of killing 50-year-old Cpl. David Gogian and 29-year-old Jeff Atherly as they responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle Sunday night.

Shawnee County officials said in a statement that Kansas Bureau of Investigation officers tried to negotiate with the suspect before firing tear gas into the home.

The statement said he emerged from the home carrying a gun and officers shot him. He was taken to a hospital where he died of his injuries early Monday.

It wasn’t clear if the suspect fired his gun.
