NORWICH, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut State Police say the search for a man wanted in connection with a stabbing in Norwich last weekend has ended with the suspect dead after an exchange of gunfire with officers.

Brandon Uzialko was wanted on an attempted murder charge in connection with a stabbing during a home invasion last Saturday night that left the victim with life-threatening injuries. Police said the victim was a new boyfriend of Uzialko’s ex-girlfriend.

The 25-year-old Uzialko was located at about 7 p.m. Tuesday and exchanged gunfire with Norwich police.

He fled on foot and was found dead several hours later at a different location.

State police have taken over the investigation.

An autopsy is scheduled. The names of the officers involved are being withheld.
