On January 7, the police in Memphis said they had stopped a car driven by Nichols for driving without a license. According to reports, the officers then got into a confrontation with the suspect, who fled on foot. The chase continued as the officers tried to apprehend him.

The police stated that he had complained of shortness of breath before he was taken to a hospital. He was then pronounced dead on January 10. The TBI stated that he died due to injuries he suffered during the confrontation with the police.

Ben Crump, a civil rights attorney, was hired by Nichols' family to represent them. His family's legal counsel stated that Nichols was returning to his parents' home after taking a photo of the sunset.

The district attorney for the county asked the TBI to conduct an independent investigation into the incident involving the police officers.

Following the incident, Cerelyn Davis, the police chief of Memphis, released a statement describing the incident as "heinous, reckless, and inhumane".

"In his statement, Davis stated that aside from being the police chief, he was also a citizen of the community. He said that the incident was a failure of basic humanity. The video of the incident will be released in the coming days.

Davis stated that the officers failed the community and the Nichols family. He referred to the incident as a failure of basic humanity."
