SummaryVictim was in the passenger seat of a car when he exchanged shots with a man on the sidewalk at about 1 a.m. June 2. Officers heard the shots, ran to the scene. Police said Batista refused to get out of the car, and an officer shot him when he jumped into the back seat and reached for a gun. Conley said Batista then got out and fired at two retreating officers before another officer shot him. He was pronounced dead at a hospital later that evening. The two responding officers were deemed to be acting in self defense and not charged with any wrongdoing.
