Yuba City Police say the man shot and killed by officers Wednesday morning had been reported missing late last month by his employer.
Daniel Lucha, 35, was originally from Ohio. Police say Lucha matched the description of a man linked to two fast food restaurant robberies.
Lucha reportedly jumped into a silver minivan and took off when an officer spotted him behind a Walmart, investigators say. Lucha’s employer had rented the van.
After a pursuit into Marysville, officers stopped Lucha’s van with a spike strip. He was shot trying to flee officers.
