MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Madison police say a suspect who stabbed and killed two people and wounded another before being shot by responding officers has died.

The police department said in a statement posted Friday night on its website that the person who was shot had died. The suspect had been taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Police spokesman Joel DeSpain said earlier Friday that two of the people who were stabbed died and the third is in stable condition at a hospital.

DeSpain said there appeared to be some sort of dispute between neighbors but police don't have a clear motive for the stabbings.

The stabbings took place Friday afternoon in an apartment along Madison's main thoroughfare. Police blocked off the area, snarling traffic in the state capital.
