Neighbors heard a fight in an upstairs apartment just before 9 p.m. A 911 caller didn't speak to the dispatcher and instead left the line open. The dispatcher heard a woman screaming and pleading not to be shot. When officers got to the apartment, they went inside because they heard screaming. While making their way to the back bedroom, they saw bullet holes in the apartment and heard gunshots. The police entered the room and found the woman being held in the bathroom by a man. Police say the man fired another shot, and officers shot and killed Donald Ward.
