A reputed gang member accused of shooting two FBI agents before he was found dead in suburban Chicago committed suicide, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said Wednesday.

Melvin Toran, 50, turned a gun on himself, the Chicago Tribune reports. 

An FBI SWAT team swarmed his house Tuesday morning to serve an arrest warrant when a shootout occurred, injuring two FBI agents.

The agents were released from local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.

FBI Bars Florida Examiner from Releasing Autopsy of Chechen Man Killed by Agent

The FBI has blocked the release of the autopsy report of the Chechen man killed by an FBI agent during an investigation in May, the Boston Globe reports.

Ibragim Todashev, a friend of one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, was in his Orlando apartment when the agent shot and killed him. 

The medical examiner said the autopsy is complete and “ready for release,” but the FBI does not want the public seeing it because the case is still under investigation, according to the Globe.

“The FBI has informed this office that the case is still under active investigation and thus not to release the document,” Tony Miranda, forensic records coordinator for Orange and Osceola counties in Orlando, said in a media statement Tuesday.
