On July 17, 2022, officers observed Waddy punching another man. As officers approached Waddy, he clutched his waistband, which made officers believe that he was armed. Waddy refused orders to stop and pulled a handgun from his jacket. Ramos and two other officers fired at Waddy, with one or more of Ramos' rounds striking people in the crowd behind Waddy. Six other people were injured.[3]

Officers rendered aid to Waddy until paramedics arrived.[4]

The incident was captured on officers' body-worn cameras and city-run surveillance cameras.[3]
