Jaquaz Walker, 17, was wearing an electronic monitoring anklet at the time of his death, according to Chief Rodney Monroe.

WBTV checked his criminal record and learned Walker faced felony breaking and entering charges and that's why he was on an electronic monitor.

Chief Monroe also told WBTV the shooting involved a marijuana drug deal between an undercover officer, informant and two teenage suspects.

Police tell say Walker shot the informant in the shoulder after attempting to rob him, and that's why police opened fire.

Walker died at Carolinas Medical Center Tuesday night.
