LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – We're finding out more about the man shot and killed by police after robbing a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in Fern Creek Sunday.

Twenty-nine-year-old Carlos Runyon was the man police said held KFC employees before fleeing with one hostage. He was shot and killed by police on Beulah Church Road after a short chase.

Ofc. Russell Carver is the officer investigators said shot Runyon – he has been placed on paid administrative leave.

Runyon has a criminal history in Louisville dating back to 2001 – including multiple drug and weapon charges.

Runyon's father spoke to WHAS11’s Karma Dickerson and said he thinks his son being out of work got to him.

Karma has more on the officer  and from Runyon’s father in the video player above.
