The victim stated that he didn’t have time to react but he saw his friend running as he heard multiple shots being fired at him. He felt one round hit him, which caused him to spin around, then he started to walk away from the area where the SUV was firing from.

The victim then called 911 for help and his friend stayed and assisted him until emergency personnel arrived. The victim sustained one bullet wound to the upper left shoulder. The victim had to be hospitalized for his injuries until further notice.
