BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) — Investigators say a suspect has been killed in southeastern Iowa after fleeing from and shooting at law enforcement officers.
The Division of Criminal Investigation says the man died early Wednesday at the Great River Medical Center.

The DCI says the man’s name will be released once his family is notified.
