SummaryPolice pulled over a car in which Dunbar was a passenger for obscured lisence plates. Dunbar got out of the car and fled. The officer shot him 2-3 times when he saw Dunbar with a gun, and then again when Dunbar apparently kept reaching for his gun, which he had dropped. Dunbar's mother later filed a wrongful death lawsuit, but I couldn't find any further information.
