Jenkins, as a passenger in a car stopped for traffic violations, fled on foot from Milwaukee police. After a foot chase involving officer Jon Bartlett, Jenkins happened to see family members in another car, which he entered. Bartlett contended that Jenkins drove and attempted to use that car as a weapon (a version contradicted by witnesses), and shot nine times, seven of which struck Jenkins and killed him. Bartlett is currently serving a prison sentence in connection with the unrelated 2004 Frank Jude Jr. beating case.
