After a six-hour standoff, Jaster opened fire on officers who approached the crawlspace where he was hiding. All four officers returned fire, hitting Jaster 41 times.
  
One of the officers was shot in the arm during the gunfight.
  
An autopsy indicated Jaster had methamphetamine in his system at the time of his death.
