7/10/2008: When police were called to a domestic dispute at a home in Hastings, Rodriguez fled on foot to the nearby Elizabeth Ann Seton Cemetery. Rodriguez, wielding a 3-foot Samurai-style sword, refused to heed officers' commands to drop the weapon. Police fired a Taser stun gun in an attempt to subdue Rodriguez, but he continued toward the officers, one of whom shot him with his gun.
