The suspect police say shot and killed five people early Wednesday morning inside a Manchester, Ill., home reportedly died at an area hospital after he exchanged gunfire with arresting officers, police told FoxNews.com.

The relationship between the suspect and his victims remains unclear, but police say the shooting occurred shortly after a prior pursuit. There were initial reports of a high-speed chase, but those reports are erroneous, police said.

Police said there is "no reason to believe there are any other suspects at this time."

Illinois State Police investigators say the suspect had several weapons with him when he was taken into custody.

An injured six-year-old girl was found inside the one-story apartment after the shooting and taken to an area hospital. Her injuries were not immediately known.
