The suspect in seven killings in and around the southern French city of Toulouse is dead after a police siege of his apartment lasting more than 31 hours, several French news outlets reported Thursday.
CNN could not immediately confirm the reported death of Mohammed Merah, following sustained gunfire around his apartment Thursday morning.
Merah, 23, was wanted in the killings of three French paratroopers and of three students and a rabbi at a Jewish school in Toulouse, in a string of shootings that began on March 11.
