According to police in Wisconsin, the suspect wanted in connection with the shooting that left two people dead following a car accident that killed a toddler over the weekend has committed suicide. 

The Associated Press reports that 27-year-old Ricky Chiles III fatally shot himself inside of a hotel near Chicago today. Milwaukee police had secured a warrant for his arrest after he killed Archie Brown Jr., 40, on Sunday. According to the Associated Press, Brown accidentally hit Chiles' 2-year-old nephew, Damani Terry, with his vehicle on Sunday, killing the boy. Terry had reportedly wandered into the street during a family gathering at the time of the tragedy.

Chiles' other nephew, 15-year-old Rasheed Chiles, was subsequently struck by a stray bullet. The Associated Press notes that he later died at an area hospital.

WISN-TV reports that Chiles had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
