LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say a murder suspect has died while hospitalized following a shootout with police during a chase last week in Southern California.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says Dylan Andres Lindsay died Thursday of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound suffered on May 10.

The department says investigators believe the 24-year-old shot himself after trading gunfire with police during a high-speed car chase. He had been hospitalized in critical condition.

Lindsay was suspected of shooting and killing a liquor store owner in the city of Downey on May 7.

Officials say during the pursuit, the suspect fired a large-caliber revolver at police from the passenger seat of a Prius.

A woman driving the Prius was shot, but her injury was not life-threatening.
