According to court records, police officers were alerted on the afternoon of July 13, 2023, by a woman driving on Linwood, near Troost Avenue, to a shooting behind a parking lot off Main Street. The victim was transported to an area hospital but died of his injuries. Officers located shell casings in an area adjacent to the parking lot. A witness told police she saw a man with a gun about the time the victim got back into the witness' vehicle, and then the witness heard gunfire. As the witness left the area, she saw the victim suffering from a gunshot wound to his face. The defendant told police he fired in the direction of the vehicle in which the victim was passenger to scare off the victim.
