The incident dates back to June 10, 2020. Close, according to Denver Police Homicide Investigator Joseph Trujillo, yelled out the window as the duo urged their pet to “go potty” saying, “Are you going to potty train? to that f**** *g dog or just yell at him?
Close then grabbed his AK-47, which he had allegedly taken from a friend who was a Denver police sergeant, and fired 24 shots. The Denver Post revealed that Thalas was shot in the back. He died from his injuries on the spot. The unfortunate incident took place just two days after his birthday.
