Barboa crashed, exited his vehicle with a knife, and slowly advanced on officers while ignoring their commands. Officers Stephanie McDonough, Jake Estrada, David McLaughlin, Zach Jacobsen, and Matt Komoda fired, killing Barboa.

In March 2018, a jury empaneled for the coroner's inquest hearing ruled that the death was a suicide.[1]
