An incident report stated police spotted a car in the side parking lot at the White Hall Walmart Sunday afternoon. As they approached the vehicle they ordered the driver to show his hands. Cumberledge allegedly put the vehicle in drive and drove aggressively toward a Marion County deputy, the report said.

The deputy and a White Hall police both fired their weapons. Cumberledge was pronounced dead a short time later.

The store was briefly locked down and deputies already in the store Sunday afternoon for Shop with a Cop, directed customers to the back of the store after the shooting occurred.
