After Brunston fled police attempts to apprehend him on domestic abuse allegations, he was cornered in a doorway near his residence and circled by officers. He claimed to have a pistol, and to be wanted for murder (both of which were false). After abortive negotiations Brunston died in a hail of 81 bullets, 22 of which hit him, and which also fatally wounded a police dog. The dog received medical evaluation by helicopter while Brunston bled to death in the street. In March 2006 the family settled a wrongful death suit with the county for $340,000.
