According to a 911 caller, the woman was screaming, "Get off me!" A witness also described hearing what he thought was the woman being struck.

Once at the scene, one of the two responding officers scaled two fences and jumped a drainage ditch to get to a bleeding female victim, police said.

As the officer approached, authorities say Glay fled the scene. The officer pursued for about a quarter mile and made multiple commands for the suspect to stop.

The officer, Corporal Tavarras Edwards, opened fire when Glay reached into a dark bag, News4's Erika Gonzalez reported.

It's unclear what Glay may have been reaching for, but no weapon was found at the scene.
