CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A man shot by a Cedar Rapids police officer has died three days after he was spotted running from a motel after a stabbing that left a woman dead.

Police identified 39-year-old Arnell States, of Cedar Rapids, as a suspect in the early Saturday stabbing of two women who was shot by an officer as he ran from a Rodeway Inn in Cedar Rapids. He died Tuesday.

The stabbing killed 34-year-old Katrina Latrese Brinson. Another woman was treated at a hospital and released. Police were called to the motel to check on a disturbance and were directed by the women to a man running from the building.

An officer chased and shot the man. The officer will be identified later, police said.
