Police said three officers were at a convenience store when they saw Olivas and one other man steal some cases of beer and jump into the car. Officers later caught up to the car, tried to stop it, and the car swerved and skidded to a stop. The vehicle's engine was revving when officers yelled for the driver to stop and, when he didn't comply, police shot into the car killing Olivas.
