NORWALK, Conn.—Norwalk police are considering evidence that the death of an 11-year police veteran may have been suicide, according to published reports.

The New Haven Register on Tuesday quoted a confidential message written by Norwalk's police chief to chiefs throughout the state about the investigation of Officer Matthew Morelli's death. Morelli, 38, died early Friday in a secluded parking lot in south Norwalk, about 50 miles northeast of New York City, after telling dispatchers he was investigating suspicious activity.

The shooting sparked a manhunt that involved helicopters, police dogs and officers from several departments.
