How to remove an offline emulator from avd devices?

I've created a couple of AVD-s in Android Studio. They were launching on emulator port 5554. Then I've created another AVD via

android avd
application, and they are starting on port 5556.

Now with a single emulator running, I get the following output from
adb devices -l

List of devices attached
emulator-5556 device
emulator-5554 offline

I'm using the tooling which cannot supply the
(specific device) option to
, so when trying to install an app, I get an error:

error: more than one device/emulator

And I'd like that there be a single connected emulator: the only one that I'm running.

I thought that removing the old Android Studio-created devices would do the trick of removing the emulator-5554, but nope. Even new devices created in Studio will open on 5556. So I've ended up with a forever-offline zombie
that screws up my build tooling.

How can I force the new emulators to be run on port 5554 and/or remove the offline

(Running Ubuntu 16.04 if it matters.)

When i am facing same issues then doing like below:

1) Restart adb by issuing 'adb kill-server' followed by 'adb start-server' at a cmd prompt
2) Disable and re-enable USB debugging on the phone
3) Rebooting the phone if it still doesn't work.

99% of my issues have been resolved with these steps.
