The Butte County Coroner’s office has identified the man that was shot and killed by Chico police on Nov. 10 as Paradise resident, Eddie Gabriel Sanchez Jr., 34.

After the Chico Police SWAT team surrounded the Pomona Avenue block to serve Sanchez a search warrant, Sanchez reportedly pulled out a gun, then was shot by Detective Mark Bass. Sanchez was pronounced dead after medics arrived at the scene.

Sanchez is believed to have been involved with a series of armed robberies that occurred last week.

“A loaded, semi-automatic firearm was recovered at the scene with the suspect,” said Chief O’Brien at Tuesday’s press conference . “Later, SWAT completed the service of the search warrant and located a second firearm inside the residence.”

Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey identified Bass as a 16-year veteran of the Chico Police Department. Both Bass and another unidentified officer have been placed on administrative leave, which is protocol.

An autopsy for Sanchez is scheduled for Friday Nov. 13 and the investigation continues for the second suspect involved with the armed robberies.
