David Charles Young, 23, has been identified by the King County Medical Examiner’s Office as the man killed by a Federal Way police officer on Tuesday. He died from a gunshot wound to the head.

Police pursued him because they suspected he had stolen the Ford F-250 he was driving.

Police said once Young stopped, an officer exited his vehicle and approached the truck. Young then started advancing the truck toward the officer “in an aggressive manner,” according to Cathy Schrock, a spokeswoman for the Federal Way Police Department. The officer fired to “stop the threat of being seriously injured.”

The name of the officer involved has not yet been released.
