KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Authorities say a man who was shot and killed by police last week was a 21-year-old from Kansas City, Kansas.

Police on Monday identified Andres Lara-Rodriguez as the suspect who died after a chase on Friday after he carjacked a pest control truck.

Officers pursued the truck for about 30 minutes from Kansas into Kansas City, Missouri, and then back to Kansas. The chase ended when the suspect crashed into a fence at a church in Kansas City, Kansas. Police say he showed a gun and a Kansas Highway Patrol trooper and three Kansas City police officers shot him.

The shooting remains under investigation.
