Barber died after a violent, chaotic incident triggered by a one-car crash. Barber broke into a nearby church and returned — naked, reportedly frantic — to confront a responding deputy. He was pepper-sprayed and shot three times, fatally, but the deputy also sustained two bullet wounds from his own gun, and sizable amounts of Barber’s blood and five of his teeth were found in the church.
