JACKSON - Louisiana State Police were called to investigate the apparent suicide of a suspect after a manhunt Thursday night. 

The East Feliciana Parish Sheriff's Office said it was called to investigate a "domestic disturbance" Thursday just after 9 p.m. on LA-68. The suspect allegedly fled into the woods upon deputies' arrival, a chase ensued, and deputies heard gunfire. 

Deputies then returned gunfire, but the EFPSO said a preliminary investigation found the suspect died from a single self-inflicted gunshot wound.

LSP says anyone with information regarding the disturbance or the apparent suicide should contact detectives at (1-800) 434-8007.
