Police said two off-duty officers noticed a man acting suspiciously in the parking lot of a bowling alley. As they approached, he fled to the apartment he shared with his girlfriend. Reynolds then pulled a handgun from his waistband, held it to his head and shouted he would not go back to prison. Police said that when his girlfriend opened the door, Reynolds pulled her out and put the gun to her head. Police said that as officers watched Reynolds through the window, he pointed the gun first at Whitaker, then at officers outside. Officer John Romberg fired two shots through the window, striking Reynolds in the chest. Reynolds’ girlfriend, disputed the police account, maintaining Reynolds never pointed the gun at her.
