Mapping Police Violence:

Officers stopped a red Hyundai four-door sedan around 11:08 p.m. because the right front headlight was not working. The officer ran the IDs of the driver and the passenger. The officer requested permission to search the vehicle, the occupants, the driver, Brittany Bass, 29, and passenger, Sabastian S. Noel, 27, denied him permission. The officer called for a narcotics detection dog, and two other officers also arrived. When officers ordered Bass and Noel to get out of the car, the initial officer who pulled them over for the traffic stop saw a folding knife on Noel’s belt and ordered Noel not to touch it. Noel quickly got out of the car, pulling a black semi-automatic pistol out of his waistband and pointing it at the officer who pulled them over. The officer drew his pistol and, during an exchange of gunfire, one of the backup officers was hit by a bullet in the top of his left foot. Noel and two officers exchanged gunfire, and at least one officer shot and killed Noel.
