They say he rammed a Farmington police officer’s patrol car then started stabbing himself in the throat.

That’s when a Farmington police officer and a us marshal tased him.

A Marshal then shot him.

Marszalek later died from his injuries however it’s still not clear if he died from his stab wounds or the gunshot.
