GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) -- A man suspected of trying to kidnap a woman in Lakewood and stealing her car was shot and killed earlier this week on I-70 and now we have a first look at the suspect.

Shawn Maurice Payne, was identified by the coroner as the man who was shot and killed by police near the Utah Border earlier this week.

Here is a look at the 2011 mugshot of Payne in Santa Rosa County, Florida.

The 36-year-old suspect had ties to Florida and Alabama. Payne died of multiple gun shot wounds. A critical incident team has been set up to investigate, in the meantime the three officers involved have been placed on paid administrative leave. That's standard procedure in an officer involved shooting.
