Employees reported that a man was making faces and yelling obscenities at customers. When an officer asked Garness for his identification, he said it was in his car. Garness went to his car and instead of getting his ID unzipped a gun pouch and pulled out a long-barrelled gun, police said. When the officer tried to get him to put down the gun, Garness climbed into the officer’s patrol car, which was left with its engine running. To keep Garness from driving away, officers shot out the rear tires of the patrol car. Garness then climbed on top of the car. When he pointed his gun in their direction, three officers shot and killed him.
