A passerby found Garza in "medical distress" around 7:26 p.m. outside of Park Middle School. Police said Garza displayed "abnormal behavior," so dispatchers also sent an officer with medics. After Officer Jair Ealy-Thomas saw a knife near Garza, he ordered him to step back. When Garza didn’t comply with orders, Ealy-Thomas shocked him with a Taser. Garza was taken to Trios Southridge Hospital, where he died hours later.
