Police say it all began when police say they were following up on an armed robbery investigation and Stanley confronted them.

The police department says it is being transparent with his family. "Officer-involved shooting, person of color. there are a lot of questions, Sergeant Christian Camarillo said, "People want answers. We are meeting with the family, we are sharing as much information as we can with them."
San Jose police are expected to give another update on the investigation on Wednesday.
