On June 9, officers responded to a disturbance call near NE 5th Street and NE Knox just before 3:30 a.m. At the scene officers found Peters seriously injured in the middle of the road next to a vehicle.

Peters was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Investigators later learned Peters gave a ride home to someone from a local bar. After he dropped that person off, he drove a short distance before he encountered someone in another vehicle and an altercation ensued.
