An Illinois man suspected of shooting a police officer after a traffic stop was shot and killed in an incident that also left an FBI agent wounded, Illinois State Police said Sunday.

Authorities said at a news conference that Dracy "Clint" Pendleton of Bellflower, IL, was killed in an early-morning shootout inside an abandoned house in southern Illinois near the Shawnee National Forest. The name and condition of the wounded federal agent, who is expected to survive, was not immediately disclosed, reports the Chicago Tribune.

Pendleton was charged with attempted murder in the May 7 shooting of a Mahomet, IL, police officer, who was shot in the arm and released from the hospital. The incident also sparked a fatal collision when a trooper pursuing Pendleton struck and killed a 26-year-old who was driving her van in Decatur.

The manhunt continued for more than one week.
