Three other people were wounded in the shootings. Dangelo killed himself once he wrecked the stolen vehicle he was driving.

On September 13, 2020 Dangelo opened fire inside a moving vehicle, killing Darcey and wounding another.

Dangelo got out of the vehicle as traffic came to a halt on the interstate, shooting a driver in the hand as he attempted to carjack her vehicle, and shooting a nearby truck driver in the face.

Dangelo rear-ended the Ford Mustang in which Phillip and his wife were traveling. They stopped, believing it to be a fender-bender, and at that point Dangelo took them hostage at gunpoint.
