The Officers attempted to contact Weisman who refused to open the door. After obtaining a key from the apartment manager, Officer's Beck and Tajii entered the apartment and encountered Weisman who was armed with a large knife.

Weisman was pronounced dead at Holy Cross Hospital at 1:20 AM.

Police recovered the 12-13 inch knife used by Weisman at the scene. Neither officer was injured in the incident.
