On November 2 at approximately 11:42 p.m., Idaho State Police initiated a traffic stop in Idaho Falls in the area of Northgate Mile and Lomax. During the traffic stop, the male driver fled on foot and was pursued by ISP.

Responding law enforcement officers on the scene quickly rendered first aid and the suspect was transported to Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The Eastern Idaho Critical Incident Task Force is now investigating this officer-involved shooting with the Bonneville County Sheriff's Office as the lead investigative agency.   The name of the deceased man is being withheld pending next-of-kin notification; we anticipate release of the name later today.
