On April 5th, 2018, 26 year old Diante Yarber was profiled and murdered by Barstow PD officers in a barrage of bullets. While waiting in the parking lot of a Walmart for one of his passengers to return from shopping, Yarber's vehicle was called into the police as "suspicious." Responding to the call, officers attempted to box in Yarber who tried to maneuvered his car around the police vehicles. In a crowded Walmart parking lot, police officers decided to halt Yarber’s vehicle by unleashing over 30 rifle rounds into the car's windshield and driver side door.
