The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said Thursday that 29-year-old Juan Manuel Flores Del Toro, who also died as a result of the shootout, was a citizen of Mexico.

The agency says he entered the U.S. in 2014 at Laredo, Texas, on a temporary agricultural worker visa.

The agency says it has no record of Flores Del Toro leaving the country or extending his visa.

Police have identified the road rage suspect who killed a sheriff’s deputy, wounded a police officer and died in a central Washington state shootout — but said Thursday they were still investigating the suspect’s background and why he led the officers on a chase before the gunbattle.

Ellensburg Police Capt. Dan Hansberry said the suspect was Juan Manuel Flores Del Toro, 29 and that he was a resident of Ellensburg, a university city of 20,000 residents east of Seattle, in agriculturally-rich central Washington.

Flores Del Toro died in a hospital a short time after the Tuesday evening gunbattle.

Investigators do not know why Flores Del Toro fled and there were no warrants pending for his arrest, Hansberry said.

Sheriff’s deputy Ryan Thompson, 42, was killed and Kittitas police officer Benito Chavez, 22, was shot in the leg, suffering a shattered femur. He was hospitalized Thursday in satisfactory condition.
