Zire King, a suspect in the murder off-duty MTA worker Jacqueline Dicks on Monday, was found dead in a New Jersey building after a standoff with SWAT team members according to multiple reports.

According to NorthJersey.com, the standoff in Hackensack lasted for five hours, starting yesterday at 2 p.m. when police arrived at a home at First Street and Stanley Place. A SWAT team that responded to the scene shot at the house 11 times between 5:30 p.m. and 6 p.m. according to the report, but the standoff only ended when officers entered the home around 7 p.m. and found King dead in a closet on the second floor of the home. Hackensack council member David Sims told the site that King died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, but that statement has not been corroborated by police.

The News reports that SWAT team member made multiple attempts to speak with King during the standoff, with one officer urging though a bullhorn him to talk to them and also by leaving a cell phone at the back door of the house. "At first, there was a female officer who was trying to have a conversation with the gentleman on a bullhorn. She'd say, 'Please, I’d like to speak with you,'" a witness who lives in a nearby senior center told the paper.

Sources also told the News that King killed himself, but that he may have done so by ingesting something, since no shots were fired in the house.

"He's gone, he's dead and my mother can sleep easy now," Dicks's daughter Tatiana told the Post, after learning about King's death.

King had been named as a suspect in Dicks's murder on Wednesday according to DNAinfo after police said his story contained inconsistencies.

Dicks's daughter told the site that her family was also suspicious of King, and described him as "a jealous little boy."
