    I'm not good enough to tell you what it is, but it's obviously not a bed bug.

    Non-expert evaluation: some species of beetle, definitely not a bed bug.

    Also it doesn't look to me like a stink bug, but to be more confident about that I'd need to see a sharper photo. A stink bug is from the true bugs group which is not the same as beetles.
