Summers was inside an Uber vehicle when the vehicle was pulled over.
Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said at a news conference that Summers refused to exit the vehicle and shot at deputies from inside the car. One round ended up in a deputy's car, the sheriff said.
Six deputies fired back at Summers, killing him.
