On April 17th at 8:00 am, police responded to Dollar General at 840 East Crawford Street, where two men were reportedly involved in a disturbance with hammers. The officers found Christian Dionicio-Reyes and Cristobal Lopez-Ramirez leaving in separate cars.

Both men, residents of Salina, had been at a work site on the 2600 block of East Crawford Street but were asked to leave and sent home. They followed each other to Dollar General, where an altercation ensued.

Christian retrieved a hammer from his trunk and attempted to strike Cristobal, who was still in his vehicle. In retaliation, Cristobal grabbed a hammer and damaged Christian's phone before swinging the hammer at him.
