On September 14, 2017, the then 28-year-old defendant stole 44-year-old Coleman’s bike and began driving away on 42nd Street between Martin Luther King Jr.Way and Telegraph Avenue in Oakland. Coleman and two other witnesses chased after the defendant to get the bike back. The defendant fell off his bicycle, allowing two witnesses to be caught.
When the two witnesses caught up with him at once, Standley drew a revolver and pointed it at one of them. When Coleman arrived a short time later, the defendant turned and shot him once in the middle.

Standley is expected to be convicted on February 17, 2022 and faces a 40-year prison term.
