Father of missing Northern California infant killed by police after chase

Missing Northern California infant's father, who skipped a scheduled meeting with a probation officer and disappeared last week, was shot and killed by police on Monday, authorities confirmed.

Matthew Graham, 24, reported his 6-month-old daughter missing on 2nd of July. He told police that his daughter Ember disappeared from his Happy Valley home, which is situated roughly 150 miles north of Sacramento. He became a person of interest after he gave inconsistent statements.

Last Friday, Graham's mother told investigators that her semi-automatic pistol, a mobile phone, some cash as well as her son was missing. Police warned that he should be considered 'armed and dangerous'.

The Siskiyou County Sheriff's Department announced in a recently released statement that Graham was killed by deputies after he stole a couple's car at gunpoint and tried to flee. Deputies fatally shot her following a chase on Monday.

The sheriff's department explained that Graham robbed Michael Prado and his wife of their car on Monday morning after spending the previous night in the yard of their Shasta Lake-based home. Before driving off, Graham warned Prado not to call police before noon but Prado called 911 immediately.

Police traced the car via its GPS system and chased it around 50 miles north to Dunsmuir. Graham got out of the car, exchanged gunfire with officers, and was killed.
