NORWICH, Conn. (CBS Connecticut and AP) – The death of a stabbing suspect who was found dead after exchanging gunfire with Norwich police has been ruled a suicide.

The Norwich Bulletin reports that the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner made the determination last week.

Police say 25-year-old Brandon Uzialko was wanted for stabbing and seriously wounding his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend in October.

Days later, he traded gunfire with a Norwich police officer before fleeing on foot. He was found dead a few hours later of a gunshot wound to the head.

The officer who fired at Uzialko has been placed back on active duty. The case is still being reviewed.
