Dear Cadey,
Your first image is of a Masked Hunter, a predatory and beneficial Assassin Bug that might bite if carelessly handled, but it will also help to keep your house free of other problematic insects including blood sucking Bed Bugs.  Masked Hunters have earned their common name because immature individuals have a sticky surface that attracts debris to camouflage or mask it in its surroundings. WE are guessing that your other images are of the same Masked Hunter, unmasked after perhaps a spray from the canned insecticide.  We hope we have convinced you that the Masked Hunter is a beneficial insect that should not be killed unnecessarily, so we are tagging this posting as Unnecessary Carnage.
