Soldiers say they found Gadhafi hiding in a sewer drain after he fled the house they were searching.
He was killed by TNC fighters after a brief struggle.
United States news outlets while not confirming, are reporting his death.
There has been no word yet from President Obama, Congress, The Pentagon, or any National Security agency, but comments are expected soon.
