According to Monroe Police Department, officers were initially dispatched to a motor vehicle crash near the entrance of the Home Depot and West Spring Street. They arrived to find Ragsdale inside one of the vehicles, a Tahoe, with a fatal gunshot wound to the head. The driver of the other vehicle was transported to Piedmont Walton, but has since been released.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation was called in to assist and Rosa was subsequently arrested in Conyers with the assistance of the Conyers Police Department. He remains in Walton County Jail without bond, charged with murder and on a probation violation.
