A suspect engaged in a shootout with police around noon Friday. He was found dead from a gunshot wound a few hours later in a wooded area where the shootout took place. The suspect was identified only as a 29-year-old man from Middletown, Delaware. It was not immediately clear whether the suspect shot himself or was hit by police in the earlier exchange of gunfire, police said.
No officers were injured in the shooting.
The state-owned cemetery is overseen by the Office of Veterans Services, a division of the Delaware Department of State.
An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the 86-year-old man had died. As of Friday night, he was in critical condition.
