Jose de la Trinidad was reportedly in the car in Willowbrook with his brother when police tried to pull them over for a routine traffic stop. Trinidad's brother, for reasons that aren't clear, sped away. When he finally pulled over, Trinidad got out of the car and raised his arm. At that point, police opened fire.
It was later reported by friends and family that Trinidad had a severe arm injury that resulted in one arm hanging by his side.
