Police in Louisiana say a man suspected of shooting two police officers in Baton Rouge has died.

Baton Rouge police issued a statement Sunday saying that Calvin Smith, 22, of Baton Rouge died late Saturday at an area hospital. Two police officers were being treated at the same hospital for gunshot wounds that were not life-threatening.

On Saturday, the officers responded to an early morning report of a domestic disturbance reported by a woman who knew Smith. When police arrived, Smith took off in a vehicle. The officers chased him for less than 2 miles. Police say Smith then jumped out of the car with a rifle and shot the officers. They returned fire and struck Smith.

Details about Smith's injuries and cause of death were not immediately available.
