An unmarked police car followed Hagans from his home and a marked police car got in front of him. They then tried to box him in at a red light.

Police say Hagans wouldn’t show his hands and rammed a cruiser so that’s when they opened fire. Hagans got out and they shot at him again.

Police say a gun was found on the ground next to him.
