An autopsy shows that a man who died in a shootout with police in New Hampshire suffered multiple gunshot wounds.

Douglas Heath, 38, was wanted on several outstanding warrants, including one for trafficking narcotics and another for fleeing from Maine troopers.

Authorities say Heath led troopers on a chase before he crashed in Rochester on Monday. They said when Heath got out of his car, there were an exchange of gunfire and he died at the scene. A gun was found next to him. No one else was hurt.

Gunshot wounds were determined to be the cause of Heath's death, with the manner of death being homicide.

The attorney general's office said two Rochester officers and two state troopers were on the scene at the time of the shooting. All four are on administrative leave.
