Police went to Boyd's house after receiving a report that a suicidal woman was there. Officers found her with a semi-automatic firearm. Police said Boyd refused to drop the weapon and pointed the gun at an officer. The officer then shot Boyd. She was taken to Mercy Medical Center where she later died. Police said Boyd had a blood alcohol content of 0.145 when she was admitted to the hospital. An autopsy shows she died as a result of two gunshot wounds. A grand jury later ruled there was not enough evidence to warrant an indictment against Officer Aaron King.
