The family of shooting suspect DeWayne Steward says he has died.

Deputies from Ascension and East Baton Rouge parishes surrounded a trailer where Steward was believed to have been in Darrow, La., Friday afternoon. Shortly after 3:15 p.m., a News 2 crew heard shots fired.

Steward was accused of shooting an East Baton Rouge Sheriff's deputy earlier this week during a traffic stop.

The location of the trailer is off Walter Hill Road.
