On Jan. 4 this year, a warrant was issued for Bond’s arrest after he was charged with assault with a deadly weapon doing great bodily harm. John Hicks, a family friend for 25 years, stood with Rivera outside the crime-scene tape and talked about Bond. “He told me they’d have to kill him before he’d go back to jail,” Hicks said. Diaz said his officers had been looking for Bond and found him at his mother’s home. Officers had been watching the residence, and about 2:45 p.m. Saturday, Bond left on his bicycle. His mother said he was going to buy cigarettes. Diaz gave this account of what happened next: Two uniformed officers in a marked patrol car tried to stop Bond, who was riding on the sidewalk on Harold Street. Bond dropped his bicycle and ran. Uniformed officers in two unmarked cars then closed in on Bond, who then turned back toward the first two officers. Bond pulled out a pistol, and those officers shot Bond. Bond’s body lay on the sidewalk while Rivera waited a half block away. She thought the body might be her son’s after he did not return from the store and descriptions of the body and the bicycle sounded familiar. Police later told Rivera that her son was dead.
