Around 12:30 p.m., police stopped a vehicle. The driver of the car, Mariano Ocon Jr., reportedly got out and "began exhibiting characteristics of an armed person," police said. Ocon's girlfriend and children were inside the vehicle. Ocon allegedly fled, officers pursued, and officers saw a handgun. Officers fired, but it was not immediately certain they hit Ocon. Police and the medical examiner determined that Ocon may have suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound and a wound to the upper body, which was likely fired by police. The death was ruled a homicide, as opposed to a suicide.
