The Georgia man suspected of fatally shooting a police officer responding to a domestic dispute near a university has died, local media reported on Thursday, citing a local police chief.

The man, Minquell Lembrick, was found dead inside a home in Americus, Georgia, south of Atlanta, after heavily armed police surrounded and searched the property, WSB-TV, an ABC affiliate, reported, citing Americus Police Chief Mark Scott.

Reuters was not immediately able to confirm Lembrick's death and local media did not say how he had died.

Video footage on social media of the manhunt showed large numbers of police outside the home and along the street as passersby watched the operation.

Lembrick was suspected of shooting two police officers on Wednesday.

Officer Ryan Smarr, 25, of the Americus Police Department died of his wounds on Wednesday, police said.

Georgia Southwestern State University, which had been on lockdown Wednesday following the nearby shooting, resumed normal operations on Thursday.
