PASCO, WA - NBC Right Now's investigative team learned more about Matthew Stoddard, the man killed by Pasco Police Officer Tony Haworth after police say he displayed a handgun. 

Stoddard's extensive criminal history starts at the young at of 14. His first first offense was a residential burglary and malicious mischief.

Since then, Stoddard's been charged with 18 felonies, one misdemeanor and one gross misdemeanor.

Most of the crimes happened in Spokane county.

Many of his teen years were spent in King County Juvenile detention, where Stoddard escaped from twice adding to his time there.

In 2009, Stoddard was convicted of more serious crimes - including possession of a firearm and meth.

As an adult, a judge ordered him to serve a 51 month sentence for that, this time in prison at the state penitentiary in Walla Walla.     

Jump ahead to 2012, apparently out of the big house, police arrested Stoddard once again out of Spokane county for possession of a stolen vehicle.

He was sentenced to 25 months of department of corrections custody.

Then just a few months ago in June, 2014 Stoddard was arrested in Franklin County for two counts of possession of a stolen vehicle.

His next run in with the law, that NBC Right Now is aware of happened early Wednesday morning and ended in his death.
