Milwaukee's police chief says a man suspected of fatally shooting two people at the scene of a traffic accident that killed a toddler has killed himself in the Chicago area.

Chief Edward Flynn said Thursday that Ricky Chiles fatally shot himself as police closed in on him at a hotel.

Flynn didn't say when Chiles died.

Flynn said police suspected Chiles of killing 40-year-old Archie Brown Jr., who had struck and killed Chiles' nephew, 2-year-old Damani Terry on Sunday. Authorities say the toddler walked into the street in front of Brown's van.

Terry's brother, 15-year-old Rasheed Chiles, was also struck by gunfire at the scene of the accident and died at a hospital.

Witnesses say the brothers had been attending a birthday party when the accident and shootings took place.
