Deputies learned Thursday morning April 6, 2017 that Richard Xavier Summers was wanted on a fraud charge, along with failing to appear. They also received information indicating that Summers was trying to obtain money and flee the country.

Summers was inside an Uber vehicle when the vehicle was pulled over.

Six deputies fired back at Summers, killing him.
