The confrontation with police only escalated from there. Officers asked Jones to put his hands on the police cruiser. Police say he didn't comply to their orders, and that's when officers had to use physical force and tasered him. Jones then took out a knife and stabbed one of the officers.
Several police officers shot and killed Jones when he refused to drop his weapon.
The officer who was stabbed only suffered a minor wound and didn't need medical treatment.
Curtis says, "I salute policemen working on our behalf, but I also feel strongly that they shouldn't use brutal force, but you have to be there to know what happened."
The five officers involved in the incident are now on administrative leave. West Virginia State Police are investigating the case.
