Witnesses said Lazard was acting erratically before officers responded to the area of Herman Drive after receiving several calls about someone trying to break into multiple houses and threatening the residents at around 5 a.m. “I heard a loud bang on my door and I jumped up out of my sleep and asked who is it and he was like, its Mooney,” Macro Lastrapes said. “He said, 'open the door for me, I'm about to die, man I'm about to die.' I said 'what?' And he said, ‘please man open the door, I'm about to die'.'” Lastrapes said he started to put on clothes, but by the time he walked outside Lazard was gone. Another resident said Lazar came to his house next. “He just started running through the house, beating on all the walls, saying he couldn't breathe and something was wrong,” Antonio Green said, “it looked like white foam was coming out of his mouth at one point.” Lazard reportedly walked into a home under construction when police arrived.
