On September 29, 1997, a newspaper delivery man came across the victim lying in the street next to his bicycle near the intersection of N Haight and N. Killingsworth Street. The victim, Timm Kruger, a 47 year-old white man, had died from a gunshot wound.

Mr. Kruger was reported to be a known alcoholic and an avid bike rider. He worked at Freightliner on Swan Island and would often ride his bike to work.

A witness reported seeing a small to mid-sized older model sedan with a white or lighte-colored hood and roof with its headlights off strike the victim earlier that morning.
