YAKIMA, Wash. —

A Yakima police spokesman says an officer checking on a suspicious vehicle early Saturday shot and killed a 23-year-old man.

Yakima County Coroner Jack Hawkins tells the Yakima Herald-Republic (http://is.gd/mBXwf0r ) an autopsy is planned Monday.

The officer has been on the force for 14 months.

Detectives are investigating.
