TUMWATER, Wash. – Police have identified a 44-year-old man from McCleary, Washington, as the suspect who was shot and killed after a string of carjackings and a shooting Sunday at a Walmart store in Tumwater.

Multiple news outlets reported Monday that Tim Day was the suspect shot and killed by a citizen in the Walmart parking lot. Police identified the customer who killed Day as a 47-year-old man from Oakville.
