Police received calls that a man was driving erratically in a black SUV firing a gun. When police arrived, neighbors told them that the man had gone into an apartment. Officers on the other side of the apartment building saw him leave through the back door and out a gate to a carport in only his boxers. This time, Barba responded to commands to put his hands in the air, but refused to drop the gun he was holding. He began to lower it in the direction of the officers. It was at that point that the officers shot and killed Barba.
