The suspect, identified as 24-year-old Mike Benjamin Grisch, was last jailed in June 2010 when he pleaded guilty to weapons charges dating back to March of that year -- where he was found in possession of a handgun.
As part of his plea agreement, several charges were dropped, he was ordered to submit a DNA sample for the national databank and he was banned from possessing weapons for 10 years.
The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) was called in to investigate the 2 p.m. police shooting during an armed robbery inside the Canadian Western Bank in the south side of Edmonton on Tuesday.
Two responding officers fired multiple shots at the armed man, who died from his injuries Wednesday morning.
Investigators say they can't confirm if Grisch fired his weapon at the officers.
