He died during a 40-minute gun fight with police-- now investigators say the Middlebury man didn't kill himself.

George Demarais, 57, told police he wanted to die by suicide by cop. He started a gunfight with police. Officers eventually found Demarais dead in a heavily-armed bunker in his backyard.

Last week, police could not say if Demarais killed himself.

Now, investigators say his gunshot wounds were not self-inflicted. Bullets recovered from his body will be sent for testing.

Two officers involved in the shooting are on paid administrative duties while state police investigate.
