DETROIT (AP) -- Authorities say a fire has badly burned the home of a man who walked into a Detroit police precinct over the weekend and opened fire, wounding four officers.

Detroit police Sgt. Eren Stephens confirms the home on Sorrento Street belonged to Lamar Moore, who was shot and killed by police during Sunday's attack.

Fire Capt. Kwaku Atara says the fire was called in at 3:14 a.m. Tuesday, and its cause is undetermined.

The fire gutted the white-sided house. Three sides are still standing, but the back is gone and charred debris litters the interior of the home as well as the backyard.

Stephens says Moore had been the subject of a sexual assault investigation before the shooting.
