On Tuesday June 19, 2018, there was a drive-by shooting in North Braddock around 8:30 p.m. Just 10 minutes later, police stopped a car matching witness descriptions of the silver Chevrolet Cruze used in the drive-by shooting. The police observed bullet holes on the side of the car.
A video recording taken by a bystander shows police ordering the driver to step out from the car. While the driver was being handcuffed, Rose and the third occupant, Zaijuan Hester, attempted to evade arrest by running from the car. Rosfeld fired three rounds, and Rose was struck by all three. He was pronounced dead at McKeesport Hospital.
In the video, a woman’s voice is heard saying, “Why they shooting at him? All they did was run, and they shooting at them.” Police said that Rose had been unarmed when he was shot. Hester escaped, but was later arrested.
