WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a suspect in a Florida killing who exchanged gunfire with U.S. Marshals earlier this week has died.

KWCH-TV reports police on Friday identified the suspect as 26-year-old Gabriel L. Davis. He died Thursday at a Wichita hospital.

Police say Davis had a warrant for a September 2015 murder out of Florida. Federal agents were monitoring a home Wednesday, when the suspect and a female got into a vehicle in the driveway.

Davis shot at them as they came near to take him into custody, and they returned fire. The vehicle fled the scene and crashed into a house, and both the suspect and the woman took off running.

Police say they found Davis during a search, and he fired a shot into his head as officers approached.
